Very good point. Nothing in principle prevents a subaddress from appearing

as a prefix, or in the middle, or as a component of a more complex
structure. Nothing precludes the use of any legal character or characters
as a separator.

Example: It might be useful for BATV, where there is a sub-part in the middle. It might be nice if the extension was defined such that it could work on BATV* addresses, e.g. could see that joe-user is the :user part of sig-scheme=joe-user/sig-data(_at_)example(_dot_)dom, etc.
Subaddress is currently RFC3598, and has 4 implementations
