COMMENT:
----------------------------------------------------------------------

Thank you for your work on this important update to IMAP, hopefully putting it
on a better footing for the future.

I'm balloting 'No Obj' in the sense that I'm trusting the ADs (and authors and
WG) and I doubt that my review of an update to a protocol that I don't know
would bring anything new or helpful to the standardization process.

I do have a meta-process question though: I suspect that there are other
protocols/RFCs that could potentially benefit from a similar treatment (DNS
springs to mind), where the old specs have many updates.  With the benefit of
hindsight, would the authors recommend doing this for other significant old
RFCs?  Or did this turn out to be significantly more effort than anticipated?

Regards,
Rob
