HTML5 and Valid eMail addresses (Upstream bug 791069)

Dear Mozilla Maintainers,
HTML5 has an odd, non-standard notion of a valid eMail address
which is (willfully) in conflict with RFCs 822/2822/5322. This
seems like an odd decision, since it both allows invalid eMail
addresses to pass in-browser validation, and rejects some valid
Mozilla's upstream currently respects the HTML5 requirements, and
has rejected attempts at "correcting" the treatment of eMail
addresses (bug 791069 in Mozilla's bugzilla). Considering that
the HTML5 definition seems like a poor user experience, I wonder
if the Debian project would be interested in incorporating the rejected
I realize this would mean maintaining a downstream patch indefinitely.
If there's interest, please let me know what the process would be.
A fairly recent patch (February against mozilla-central) is at
http://matt.wronka.org/stuff/projects/icpp/mozilla/ although I could
generate a more recent or different version if there's interest.
