If your statement here includes the "by convention contains an rfc2822
name-addr" part of the wording, please bring this opinion up on the openpgp-wg

The argument is being made (and I agree) that it's plain to see that
implementations neither emit user ids as rfc2822, nor parse them as such, by
convention or otherwise.  The spec is factually wrong and misleading for
implementors in this aspect, and should be updated to reflect reality.
