Yes, it would probably be best to specify a restricted subset of RFC822. Luckily most of the work for that was done in RFC2822, and it would probably be sufficient to specify RFC2822 "mailbox" syntax with no "obsolete" elements. Multiple mailboxes can be listed with comma delimiters. Then if someone wants to get really creative with their comments and routing syntax, just file a bug.
