 Kind of:

 rfc2822: 3.4.1. Addr-spec specification

 They are allowed, along with most everything else, but only with a
quoted string ... so "mahmoud,elmegheny"@hotmail.com is a valid email
addr. but without the quotes it isn't.

Then maybe we should change the delimiter, although this seems like it is pretty rare.
