These days, both RFC 7489 and RFC 5322 are being rewritten. Yet, the sentiment of the community who rewrites them seems to be that since that feature is seldom used, it is a waste of time to consider it. Such a schizophrenic stance leads to inconsistent standards.

The people who wrote RFC 7489 in 2015 think it's not used, the people who wrote RFC 822 in 1982 thought it was used, the people who updated 822 didn't see enough reason to break compatbility. None of that is well described as schizophrenic. Please drop the hyperbole.

The hyperbole makes it difficult to see a real argument, if there is any.
