Is this convention recommended or discused in some IETF standard? I
cannot find it in rfc5322.

it comes from Usenet -- see RFC3676 #4.3

Oh, I had completely forgotten that it made it into the text/plain format
definition.  Thank you!  I'll add that to my page of Usenet article
reference information.
