That said, I did find another example of indicating comma-separated 
sequences with `#` in [RFC 
7230](https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc7230#section-7) (though it might 
well have been inspired by e811c7f6db57dbfc239b040e5135c2b86ba04e8e), 
and also prior art in an [early 
draft](https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-ietf-drums-abnf-01#section-3.9)
 of RFC 2234 from 1997 that didn't make it into the final version. So 
there's definitely a leg to stand on in keeping and using it.
