You are of course right about this, and using a vendor registered tag is 
"The Right Solution(TM)". But I'm still not too happy about the kolab 
clients depending on a non-RFC feature that no imap server supports out 
of the box without patching.

So the questions boil down to: Can we live with depending on a patched 
cyrus imapd? Can we live with the danger or other clients fscking up 
the /comment on Kolab folders?
