If anyone has more or less broad issues that should be

errata or recent discussions, mentioning them RSN so I can add
them to the list would be helpful.  The list so far is:

   Appendix G.  Other Outstanding Issues
     G.1.  IP address literals
     G.2.  Meaning of "MTA" and Related Terminology
     G.3.  Originator, or Originating System, Authentication

I have a couple of topics that I think it's worth discussing:

    G.4.  Reshape Section 3.9 so that ancillary specs can define:
          G.4.1 Mailing lists, including newsletters, and,
          G.4.2 Email address portability, by forwarding.

    G.5.  Clarify where the protocol stands with respect to
          * submission on port 587
          * submission on port 465
          * TLS relay on a port different from 25 (whenever)

I take the occasion to recall that I have copied some annotations from YAM to:

Further annotating rfc5321bis-00 can help staying focused, IMHO.
