Thanks for the work on this. I plan to ballot "yes", but have one item I think
needs to be discussed first:

The security considerations say that this extension adds no new considerations
not already present in [RFC5228], [RFC5230], [RFC5435], and [RFC6131]. I'm not
sure that that is true.

It seems like the ability to insert a copy of message into a mailbox might have
security and/or privacy considerations. This seems analogous to the "fileinto"
action. I looked for security considerations for that in RFC 5228. All I found
was a statement that "fileinfo" can be dangerous, but no elaboration on the
nature of the danger or how it might be mitigated. So while I agree that fcc
would have similar considerations as "fileinfo", I'm not sure those
considerations have been adequately documented.  (I expect people will point me
to something I missed, or where some other analogous feature is documented, in
which case I will clear.)


§1, last paragraph (nit): Should "each action" be "each new action"?

§3.2, construction for FCC-OPTS: There is no extension point among the options,
which would seem to require any new options update this RFC. Would it be
reasonable to add one?
