I'm not sure why this is needed. This API tries to be higher level than
those folders. A received message will be in Inbox, those sent in Sent.

Outbox and Draft should probably be handled by the app itself. If I
receive or send a message, I would expect them to be in APP1 and APP2.
However, if I try to send a message from APP1, seeing a "Retry" UI in
APP2 might be odd. Same thing with drafts: I wouldn't expect a draft
wrote in APP1 to show up in APP2. The current API allows application to
have the exact Outbox/Drafts behaviour.

I think the first released document should probably include this because
it's a basic feature.
