Any changes on how recipients and queue/deliver is handled?

I started implementing my proposal from a while back and got stuck on  
how to handle errors.  If a transaction has multiple valid recipients  
and each one is handle by different queue modules, but only one of  
queue modules returned a failed, is the whole thing a failure or  
should the other messages be delivered and what should be returned  
for a status for the DATA command?

I am thinking that if all recipients are valid and can be handle by a  
queue module then DATA will always return OK/200 what ever success  
is.  If a queue module then finds an error happens while trying to  
really deliver the message, a bounce need to be generated.  This  
means we should have a common way to generate a bounce message  
instead of having every module come up with its own.
