This seems odd.
I fail to see anything odd about it.
Don't you think it's odd to explictly allow labeling non-822 addresses
I mean, I see the argument for allowing anything, but to then label that
rfc822 seems very odd.
So "hands off" really is the best policy here.
(JFYI, I wasn't suggesting anything else. My actual problem came up
while comparing addresses. Is this address equal to that, is this
address in that set, that kind of thing.)
I will say that if there are agents out there that are sufficiently up
to date to generate ORCPT but still don't know how to present a
syntactially valid RCPT TO, well, that's pretty unfortunate.
Such is the world.
