   An atom is a string of one or more characters terminated by the end
   of the field value or by any of these characters: space, tab, @, <,
   >, [, left parenthesis, comma, semicolon, colon, dot, double quote.
   (Note that adjacent atom tokens must be separated by at least one
   comment, space, or tab.)

RFC 822 says the same thing: atoms ``are delimited by the
self-delimiting symbols and by linear-white-space.''

Not a good idea. The ABNF+822bis syntax is an untested computer program
in a weak, error-prone programming language.
