RFC 5335, "Internationalized Email Headers", September 2008

Note: This RFC has been obsoleted by RFC 6532

Section 4.5, 2nd par says:

|  The "Return-Path" header provides the email return address in the
|  mail delivery.  Thus, the header is augmented to carry UTF-8
   addresses (see the revised syntax of <angle-addr> in Section 4.4 of
   this document).  This will not break the rule of trace field
|  integrity, because the header is added at the last MTA and described
   in [RFC2821].

It should say:

|  The "Return-Path" header field provides the email return address in
|  the mail delivery.  Thus, the header field is augmented to carry
   UTF-8 addresses (see the revised syntax of <angle-addr> in Section
   4.4 of this document).  This will not break the rule of trace field
|  integrity, because the header field is added at the last MTA and
   described in [RFC2821].

Notes:

Conformance to long-standing terminology established in the IETF
requires making the precise distinction between a 'header' and the
'header fields' it is comprised of.

Most parts of this RFC do this job correctly; this paragraph is an
exception.
