At the moment, I don't have a time to study the code and his
patch.  So, I can't doubt nor be sure on anything.

But, in general, I think we can treat all non-ASCII
characters as the same way in a mail address.  And, if
mail-extr.el utilizes a syntax table to parse a mail
address, I think setting all non-ASCII characters to the
same syntax (in the current case, word) is the right thing.

So, my suggestion it to do that and see if it works well if
no one can investigate the code and RFC-822.
