Re: Generalizing subaddress

I was tasked at Tuesday's Sieve WG meeting with trying to make the
language in the subaddress draft even more general than it
currently is, but as Philip noted in another thread, doing so makes
it very difficult to describe when :detail is present/empty/not
present. I have not found a way to describe these states without
relying on some type of 'delimiter' or 'separator'.
Consider this a plea for some suggested text.
I think much of Ken's problem here is that he's trying to build a
standard method for doing something with unstandardized local part
Perhaps what's actually needed is some kind of informational document
describing various mechanisms that exist for subaddressing and
similar local-part "encodings", and then using the subaddress Sieve
extension to access those encodings.
You see things; and you say "Why?"
But I dream things that never were; and I say "Why not?"
