           Summary: The valid-email address ABNF doesn't include IDN, so
                    for it to work the value must be punycode (or at least
                    converted to punycode when validating), but this isn't
                    mentioned, except as an optional example ("User agents

Comment:
The valid-email address ABNF doesn't include IDN, so for it to work the value
must be punycode (or at least converted to punycode when validating), but this
isn't mentioned, except as an optional example ("User agents may transform the
value for display and editing (e.g. converting punycode in the value to IDN in
the display and vice versa)."
