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

Various non-blocking questions/comments:

2.3.1.1 what would happen if the UID approached 2^32 due to a lifetime of spam
or something? The server can increment the validity value, but doesn’t that
make earlier email unreferenceable except via sequence number?

2.3.2 In the $Phishing definition, do you mean the user agent SHOULD (in caps)
display an additional warning message?

4.1.1 the last statement, “ the "*" value for a sequence number is not
permitted.”, is oddly placed, enough that it almost reads like a typo where you
meant UID. A clearer statement might be “The ‘*’ value is permitted for UIDs
but not sequence numbers.”
