It is my impression that the IESG would prefer to see RFCs that went a
little too far in discussing security implications than to err in the
other way, and leave out discussion that is relevant just because it
might also appear in a different forum.

Insofar as the mailserver proposal makes suggestions about ways in
which interpreting a 'mailserver:' URL might be insecure and
recommends to implementors how to protect against misuses, I think
this discussion is appropriate.
