I would like to see quality in both realms. I don't see that my UIDNEXT\UIDVALIDITY detracts from protocol quality but actually adds to it. I think it is sufficiently easy to implement efficiently that it can be included. It is also optional, so a server that cannot implement efficienty it can ignore it.

You seem to be pushing "quality" into the server implementation realm
and pretending that a protocol itself has no quality.
But it has. A protocol can good, in which case it's easy to implement
efficiently, and it can be bad, in which case it usually is difficult
to implement efficiently.
