How about this instead (which is a little closer to the text
throughout the rest of the document)?:
...it is RECOMMENDED that the right hand side

such that the generator of the message

We don't talk of "software" or "vendors" in this document.
"Implementations" and "implementers" are about it.
In section 4.3, why does obs-zone have [CFWS] between the sign and
the digits of the timezone offset? Such space was not permitted by
It sure was. Comments and folding white space were allowed between
any two tokens in RFC 822. And since the syntax for zone was:
("+" / "-") 4DIGIT
a comment was allowed between those two. I don't know how to read
3.1.4 and 3.4.3 in RFC 822 and not come up with that interpretation.
