This works just fine with IMP 5. Responding, e.g., to a message from
foo+bar at example.com correctly sets the To: address on the compose
message to foo+bar at example.com.

To the extent this doesn't already work, no. Why would you need this
anyway? Such e-mail tags are meant to be transparent to everyone
outside of the local MTA anyway.
