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.
It can. But since the two tend to go together in practice, I'd say that
extensions should too, if only to lessen the chance of future gotchas.
I would hate to stumble into another maze like ACL/2.
As I read the ANNOTATE draft, Freenet is free to say that
/vendor/freenet/expiry is an integer containing some number of days,
counting from the INTERNALDATE. No extension needed.
