Sorry to barge in on this particular topic (which is mostly
unrelated to the issues raised by K.J. Petrie or the alleged DoS
issue), but this ain't correct. The v=spf1/pra re-use issue was
indeed discussed at the MAAWG meeting in Düsseldorf. I'm not sure
what you mean when you say that "allowing record scoping" was
proposed, but what was actually proposed were two different things
(depending on whom I talked to):
A. Accept the v=spf1/pra re-use and start promoting v=spf1 as
different meaning than what had been defined back in 2003.
B. Abandon v=spf1 entirely in favor of spf2.0 (or some completely
different) scheme in order to avoid the misinterpretation of
records for PRA purposes.
It seems v=spf1/pra will be more disruptive than spf2.0/mailfrom?
What is your view about forcing use of different scripts?
