but he wants to use dovecot and uninstall cyrus-sasl-lib
for whatever reason - it makes sense to use dovecot
for SASL auth to make sure using the same auth-mechs
and password databases in SMTP / IMAP / POP3

but i see no sense in using dovecot here

you do NOT want to authenticate with your passwords
on a foreign server nor leave the option to this
due accident
