Some motivation for this:

MIME is not relevant to the transfer service.
Huh? Content-Transfer-Encoding is not relevant to transfer?!?
3.3 Message Identifiers
Not conform RFC 2822 section 3.6.4
(the right side is not always a domain)
Well, this is interesting. I believe the intent of rfc2822 is to
characterize the id-right field as either a domain name or an ip address.
But it appears that it does not say that.
It is a domain name or domain literal. RFC 2822 introduces different
grammar productions form those used in angle-addr to enforce syntax
requirements (no line folding in identifiers) but does not change the
semantics (RFC 2822 clearly so indicates).
