1 - there are utilities that will convert procmail scripts to sieve
scripts so I am told.

2 - few users are invested in procmail scripts that I have seen

3 - there are such neat auto features of cyrus-imapd that automate
script installation on creation of user.

4 - as you point out yourself, procmail's syntax is pretty much
impossible for end users and sieve, though slightly less powerful is
actually understandable. Put Horde/IMP/Ingo online or websieve online
and users can actually create their own server-side filters.
