There you go again, trying to put words in other peoples' mouths.
I never said any such thing; I said that RFC 2822 is imprecise and
I have specifically pointed out that there is absolutely nothing in
RFC 2822 that supports your assertion that id-right is always case-

No, I am putting your own words back into your mouth.


You have missed the critically important fact that in all cases
discussed, the relevant RFCs refer to RFC 822 (a full Standard),
not RFC 2822 (a Proposed Standard). And RFC 822 defines the
identifiers in question as containing a local-part and a domain.

RFC 2822 id-right is a problem because it changes the semantics.

Which is exactly what I said you had said.
