Huh? Content-Transfer-Encoding is not relevant to transfer?!?

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).
