Thanks, Paul.

A few comments inline (that originally read "one comment in line" but,
erm, well, er ...)

I agree about the whitelists and blacklists.  The idea here is for, say,
an endpoint that supports async replies to say things like "I can send a
reply via email" or maybe "I can't send HTTP replies to www.cnn.com" and
probably "I can accept RM Anon (or whatever other magic URI) in a
ReplyTo."  All of this would work together with  an implicit (or
explicit) "I may also have more restrictions that I can't or won't tell
you about."

Lest this seem like some big amorphous ill-defined ever-growing
feature-creeping behemoth, the plan would be to provide a couple of bits
of XML to say "it looks like this" and "you can/can't use it here" and
let people who have more exotic things to say extend.

Indeed, but I'm pretty well convinced there's no need for this.

I'm all for it.  I'll even file the issues if there's a consensus to do so.
