OK. I'm having fun making this work. It also means that a list can begin or end with commas. Fun. Now, on a more interesting front:

FWIW, I think that these cases would be odd to have happen, but I don't see any reason to prohibit them. Given the basic idea of a list syntax, it actually seems more complicated to prohibit them.

I read this combination as rather explicitly allowing white space around a comma.

So, do you think the following is a legal group address in 822's syntax?

GroupName: dhc(_at_)dcrocker(_dot_)net, (missing address), dcrocker(_at_)bbiw(_dot_)net,

Yes, thanks. I think you have nicely demonstrated its utility. The comment might contain an explanation about the occurrence and reason for having excised an address.
