While the writeup mentions:

      Consequently the base IMAP and POP3
      documents are no longer dependent on particular downgrading
      choices and that two methods presented are, to a considerable
      extent, just examples.

I believe that the two methods should be Informational, as opposed to Standards Track.

However, I now see the following sentence, which was essential to me:
    While this document specifies a well designed mechanism, it is only
   an interim solution while clients are being upgraded
   [I-D.ietf-eai-rfc5721bis] [I-D.ietf-eai-5738bis].

So I'll clear my DISCUSS.

Regards, Benoit

Consider reinforcing in the security considerations section that the actions described by this document do not include removing any signatures from the original message - discouraging a server implementation from trying to be 'helpful' by removing a signature they know will fail.

- Should the security considerations here have a MUST or SHOULD
statement calling for the server to strip existing Downgraded-*
header fields? If not, why not?

- Would it be worthwhile having a PDF version of this document
that contained examples that show actual non-ASCII characters in
appendix A? If so, then pointing to that in the ASCII appendix A
would be a good thing too.
