Considering that this is really a 5822 level problem, I have my doubts that a DKIM/ADSP
targeted document is the right place to bury this kind of advice. And I'm also skeptical
that we have the right set of eyes looking at this in this working group because this is
certainly a very old topic and it would be stupid of us to come out with advice that goes
against or without the consent of the much larger smtp community.
On the other hand, if the larger email community already has a normative or BCP solution
to this which we can just restate, then that's great. (which might be what you're getting at).
