Well, my point (perhaps not sufficiently clear) was that the
allusion to RFC2821 was the "blah blah" part of the response
and should not carry any weight.  The error is "550 5.7.1"
indicating a policy that rejects EHLO address literals.  The
RFC allusion is a distraction.

I'm pretty sure that everybody agreed on that 2 weeks ago.

I thought so.
The problem is that the IETF mail server shouldn't be actively
misleading non-spammers about the reason for their mail

Did anybody ever get the attention of the people the email
support is outsourced to?

Yes.  Hector and I did.  The response was, in essence, that the
IETF leadership told them to do it.  I've been too busy to
follow up, but watch for a note within the next 24 hours or so
-- I'll copy this list.
