It's a pretty safe bet that Return Path is among the top three generators of
ARF messages (counting by message), and we only use the 'abuse' type -- yet
I still see confusion about the others. This leads to interoperability
issues, such as when a feedback consumer assumes that they'll only have to
care about "opt-out" while pretty much all of the feedback providers in the
world only provide "abuse".
So, to kick off the first argument as we move into the possible creation of
a formal IETF WG, I propose that we:
Keep: abuse, dkim, not-spam, other
Drop: fraud, miscategorized, opt-out, virus
And keep the registry, so that new types may be added in the future if a
demonstrable need arises.
What say you?
