A generalisation yes, but an incorrect one - single quotes are not

Thanks for your comments.
What you say is completely correct according to the RFC. But look at
the following headers from a message in my inbox:
To: "'C Mummert'" <mummert(_at_)math(_dot_)psu(_dot_)edu>
X-Mailer: Microsoft Outlook, Build 10.0.4510
How about treating "'stuff'" as quoted instead of treating " and '
