I would suggest you read the list archives, avaliable via anonymous
FTP to cnri.reston.va.us:/ietf-mail-archives/pop3/

The decision on this is final for this go-around, the successor to
1460 has already been approved by the IESG as a Proposed Standard.
The only reason this list still exists is in case there is any
discussion on draft-myers-pop3-auth-01.txt, which is currently in Last
Call.
