proper. I'm against this because I dislike the complexity it adds, which I see
as unnecessary. And unless there's some evidence of support for your view from
other quarters I'm not going to revisit this.
Excuse my ignorance, but I fail to see why it would be necessary to use a different namespace for Sieve comments. Programs that interpret Sieve from XML representation would just ignore such elements. Programs that generate XML representation automatically (e.g. from some rule based UI) are unlikely to generate them anyway.
Am I missing some use cases?
