                    syntax is, to allow "username@localhost".  This might
                    actually be useful for testing web apps, and it
                    doesn't seem like it would cause any extra harm.  Plu

Comment:
You should allow the part after the at sign to be ldh-str 0*( "." ldh-str ),
or whatever the proper syntax is, to allow "username@localhost".  This might
actually be useful for testing web apps, and it doesn't seem like it would
cause any extra harm.  Plus, in principle, a regular TLD could resolve to
something with an A or MX record, e.g., the ccTLD "to" has an A record and
maybe mail can get there (dunno).
