Thanks.  I noted that parameters for the "LIMITS" keywork are ";" delimited,
that's not the common pattern in EHLO keywords, where e.g. SASL mechanisms,
are space-separated.  It seems unlikely that limits will be anything but
boolean or numeric, and so ";" looks a bit out of place to me.

It feels more like MIME rather than SMTP. :-) :-)
