I searched github for "smtp 354" now, on the theory that that number won't be used for much other than the response code. Finding the first smtp client that expects 354 instead of 3 took maybe a whole minute. That package is a tool used by innumerable web sites to send mail. I expect I'd find many more if I were to spend a few more minutes looking.

While scrolling down I saw lots of unit tests that used 354, which makes me suspect that half of that software would break if fed 353 or 355 (and some would break in exciting ways).
