I personally used it almost exclusively from IMP which means that the  
full address goes to the list and strict checking is required.

I have no problem being convinced otherwise if experiences from large  
user bases are different and I don't use this feature a lot anyway,  
but the Sieve implementation makes more sense to me. Especially if you  
don't want to check for domains but full addresses and still have  
substring checking. E.g. if I want to block jan at horde.org, but not  
karajan at horde.org.
