Section 4:

The term "in decoded form" is vague and can be interpreted different
ways (for example, I might consider removal of the "rfc822;" prefix to
be part of decoding :-).

That's how I implemented it.

I see it was wrong. (Ned, did I complain about missing examples when I reviewed?)

I suggest this say "with xtext encoding (RFC 3461 section 4) removed".

I'd prefer that a script sees addresses in only one format.

Why is this justifiable:
   envelope :orcpt :is "rfc822;max(_at_)example(_dot_)org"
when we also have
   envelope :from :is "max(_at_)example(_dot_)org"

That difference sounds like a good way to trip up human script authors.

Q: Is there a reason this didn't deal with FUTURERELEASE (4865) at the
same time?

Futurerelease seems to go dead. I'm the only implementer AFAICT, and it's been three years already.

(Repeating myself: Delaying mail is a fine way to make mail loops harmless. Just a 30-second delay changes a 2000-per-hour loop into a 100-per-hour loop, much easier for operators to handle.)
