By my reading, this allows 'ehlo F.Q.D.N' and 'ehlo [add.ress.lit.eral]', but

Am I caffeine-challenged, or is the ABNF actually borked on this?

I'd say it's section that's b0rked. If you allow free
form "information" after the FQDN/address-literal it makes it
impossible to parse (ESMTP) parameters for EHLO.
