Yeah well the only reason it came up was that the proposed EC directive
someone quoted stated, if I remember it correctly, that the user had to
be able to see before downloading the email whether it was UCE or not.
To accomplis this with POP3, unless I'm mistaken, you can't use a
"X-UCE:" header or the user won't know it's UCE until s/he's downloaded
