I think based on people's concern for restrictive policies, we might need
additional for OA that helps define the 3PS policy.
For 3PS, we have Never, Allowed (optional). I think we might need a APPEND,
RESIGN and IGNORE policy in there.
This will help alleviate issues where an OA EXCLUSIVE policy is used on
extermal mail services.
So something like (using your notation)
signature=always, 3PS=IGNORE -- Keep Original, don't strip, resign
signature=always, 3PS=APPEND -- Append, don't strip or replace.
signature=always, 3PS=RESIGN -- strip and replace.
I'm just winging it, but the idea is to keep restrictive policies flowing
when it goes thru a mail service.
