If past discussions are any indication, getting consensus on how to handle
greylisting is going to be difficult. I don't want to make this document
dependent on that.

The proposed text doesn't do anything to make that situation worse.  Pretty
much every MTA administrator that didn't just fall out of a tree already knows
that greylisting happens, and they have some already-decided way of
retrying.  The only thing this changes is that the receiving MTA now has a
way to tell the sending MTA "don't bother retrying for NN minutes".
