Quite a list. But I believe most of those values are quite useful and I

Yes, I second that. Otherwise quite a few installation will just hook 
the dovecot commands to netsnmp handlers, which is not a pretty solution.

Maybe dovecot could also do the SNMP for statistics that plugins 
provide? I'm thinking managesieve access, sieve processing or expire here.
