I believe this is an opportunity, and the BOF should consider that the
working group's mandate be extended larger than originally suggested.
As pointed out previously on other threads, having a working group that

more wide ranging email problems, that are important to the internet
That would be an excellent way to avoid getting the primary task done,
which is to get the two, primary specification elevated to full

It's not that the larger scope isn't worthy, it's that it isn't practical.
After the primary task is completed, it might make sense to consider
rechartering, for a scope of the type you suggest. But not before then.
