   By convention, it [the OpenPGP user id packet] includes an RFC 2822
   mail name-addr, but there are no restrictions on its content.

thus you should not assume that the same rules apply.  In fact OpenPGP
requires UTF-8 which is not allowed by RFC-5322.



Die Gedanken sind frei.  Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
