Can I suggest that for the same reasons that using x- for provisional
message headers is not recommended that you do not require x- as a parameter
prefix?

Also, it would be nice to have a "from" parameter, as alternative to the
>From Http header, that allowed the use of a URN to identify the requesting
user rather than being limited to an email address.
