Please don't send those extensions to the RFC editor. They are very
poorly designed and will cause a number of serious problems in the field.
I believe this is out of scope for the GRIP WG.
I consider the SMTP AUTH extension to be a superior solution to the
problem in all ways -- it requires fewer code changes, is more flexible
and secure, and results in an architecture with better functional
separation. See draft-myers-smtp-auth-09.txt. That solution also works
for IMAP as well as POP with far less complexity.

list since this is out-of-scope]
