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

Section 1

(RFC 8174 provides an updated version of the BCP 14 boilerplate that can be
used instead of the RFC 2119 boilerplate.)

Section 3.5

   Unlike the APPEND command which is valid in the authenticated state,
   the REPLACE and UID REPLACE commands MUST only be valid in the
   selected state.  This difference from APPEND is necessary since
   REPLACE operates on message sequence numbers.

The stated justification applies only to REPLACE.  What is the
justification for disallowing UID REPLACE from the authenticated state?

Section 4.3

   (Sending the APPENDUID in the tagged OK, as described in the UIDPLUS
   specification means that the client first receives an EXPUNGE for a
   message and afterwards APPENDUID for the new message.  [...]

nit: This comma is either spurious or missing a partner (if "as described
in the UIDPLUS specification" is supposed to be a parenthetical).
