If an example is to be changed and still keep its value to the

And an on-topic remark: I tried to edit the examples in either 2821
or 2822 into 2606ese a couple of years ago, but gave up. 2606 didn't
provide enough domains for me to do the job well. Maybe a better
editor could do it. Or maybe not. Jon Postel chose to use more
domains than 2606 provides, and IMNSHO Jon Postel was good enough at
I think that with a few iterations this group might get it
right. 2821 would not be what it is without Jon Postel's
examples. The examples also provide an insight on how SMTP has
evolved over the years.
