It would require users to "optimize" their sieve scripts to take advantage of
the suggested feature.
I disagree with you but I am not volunteering to implement cyrus part of it :)

It will make remote host sending message to sendmail & cyrus pair responsible
for generating the bounce message (in format beyond our control).

This is a tricky problem from sendmail perspective.
As I wrote incorporating sieve into map lookup results send back to sendmail
is an option to investigate in some future version of cyrus "map protocol"
