...clarifying: you say "adding text that allows duplicates 
explicitly"... that could be read to REQUIRE recipients to accept those 
duplicates -- are we really going to declare recipients that do not do 
that to be non-compliant?

If we do, we *probably* need to adjust the header field ABNF (because 
"x, x" doesn't parse), which I'd rather do not...
