I' not sure it is good enough:

- nobody uses it (but everyone uses a server)
- it requires email support
- either it requires manual action, or has to be implemented
in every client.
- it can be great fun if someone copies my document with errors,
but never corrects them when I do.
- it can be so easily abused: <HEAD><LINK REV=made
You're all a load of *** :-)
- it can be so easily abused: <HEAD><LINK REV=made
Thanks for requesting our add, your email address
has been added to our mail-shot list :-)
