IMHO either From: <> or From: <-(_at_)[]> would work better.

Using From: <> might be feasible, if the HTTP folks (who would
be affected by such a syntax change) agree.  So far, no comments
from HTTP folks (probably not surprising, since to date the draft
has been discussed exclusively here in the ietf-822 list).
