FWIW, the real (poorly-written) world appears to be nowhere near RFC-
compliance, especially on anything web-related. I gave up using the
apostrophe in my email address some years back as it just wasn't
worth the effort attempting to communicate with clueless nitwits. One
semi-unexpected benefit is that I check for certain classes of SQL
injection attacks pretty much out of habit... ;-)
