A practical note:

This list makes use of MailMan – which in theory is EAI ready.
This list is hosted by ICANN.
ICANN IT will have to have changes in its infrastructure for these objectives to b read

  *   Correct operating systems hosting mailman
  *   Correct version of mailman running
  *   ?maybe an up-to-date version of ICANN’s MTA if it doesn’t use MailMan’s own (assuming it has one)

Such measures would be interesting, but they have a bottleneck in a single spot and probably not a good measure – at least at this time.

I think that "when the bottlenecks are important enough for ICANN IT to solve" is a good milestone to track. We may not be the first to resolve the problem, but how long it takes those promoting the solution to be able to use it is a pretty useful thing to note.

I also agree that when we get spam on EAI addresses will be a good milestone to note.

On the assumption that ua-discuss will at some time in the future fully support EAI, one could have periodic reports on the percentage of ua-discuss members using EAI addresses on ua-discuss. When fully supported, I will join ua-discuss with an EAI address. For an interim period I will have both EAI and ASCII addresses on ua-discuss. When I am happy that everything is working correctly I will drop my ua-discuss ASCII email.

Extract from the Notes: "  There was a request to get some metrics for measurement of success and achievement."

Measures of success could include:

① When members of this list can email to this list using their EAI email address and everyone receives it.
② When members of this list can email to this list using their EAI email address and everyone receives it and everyone can successfully reply to it.
③ When we start getting spam on our EAI email addresses

① & ② require us to be able to be a member of this list with our EAI email addresses. Is any work being done on supporting EAI for this email list?
③ You may think I am joking about the spam but I am being serious

IMHO, I think we should aim to have every member of this list, using this list with an EAI email address and not an ASCII email address. Lead by example.
