There's nothing that says we need an IMAP extension for expiration before
defining a sieve extension for expiration. Sieve can work in enviornments
other than IMAP.
You could also have a sieve implementation that ran against the current
contents of a mailbox iteratively, and threw out (or refiled) all messages
older than the expiration date, for example [though I suppose this relies
more on a date comparison extension than any particular "Expire"
