Make p=none with no reporting URI invalid

Reported by: seth@… Owned by:
Priority: major Milestone: Deliverable #3 (changes to DMARC base spec + DMARC Usage Guide
Component: dmarc-bis Version:
Severity: - Keywords: nit tag-update


p=none without reporting is the same as having no record, but many organizations do just this and expect a benefit. Explicitly making this case invalid would remove confusion from the ecosystem.

In particular, there are a huge number of domains in Europe that have been putting in bare "p=none" records and claiming to have DMARC in place.

The consensus of the working group is that this is valid, and discouraging such usage should be left to a BCP or guidance document.
