I can not see any feature request in your posts.

In http://archives.neohapsis.com/archives/postfix/2011-03/0111.html
you asked if inet: is a recommended mechanism or if there are
alternatives while it is not documented. Later you unconditionally
stated the warning is obsolete, implicating removal, and asked to
mention an unsupported feature in official documentation. Neither is a
feature request.
