It's a well thought out approach. However I see nothing in it that
justifies delaying work on SSP.
I think there is a strong justification for not REQUIRING SSP to be
finished to publish the base dociment. I think there is no
justification provided for deferring all work on SSP.
I'm not sure which you are proposing.
If you are proposing that finishing SSP not be a requirement for
submitting the base to the standards process, then I think that makes a
lot of sense.
If you are proposing that work in the group cease on SSP until the base
document is submitted to the standards process (this will come as a
surprise to no one, I'm sure), I think it's a serious mistake.
I won't attempt to rehash all the reasons why. The short version is
that I don't think we need better inputs to do more heuristics. I think
we need alternatives to heuristics. I don't think that building a
better whitelist justifies the effort of DKIM.
