Oh, but read more carefully, it already allows at least one RFC 822
exception in Maintainer fields.

Otherwise we could also publically lambast people like:

% egrep '^Maintainer: .*,' *|sort -u
main.Packages:Maintainer: Adam C. Powell, IV <hazelsct@debian.org>
main.Packages:Maintainer: Eric Gillespie, Jr. <epg@debian.org>
main.Packages:Maintainer: James Penny (Midway, Kentucky) (No Comment) <jpenny@universal-fasteners.com>
main.Packages:Maintainer: John H. Robinson, IV <jaqque@debian.org>
main.Packages:Maintainer: Thomas Bushnell, BSG <tb@debian.org>
