Hi Sam,

My apologies to you and to the working group for my seriously delayed 
processing of your feedback. I'll work to reply to all threads shortly.

Comments inline.

Primarily that's because RFC 5322 calls it a display name (e.g., in the 
string "Sam Whited <sam@samwhited.com>"; the substring "Sam Whited" is a 
display-name, but it's not necessarily what we'd typically refer to as a 
nickname).

Typo: s/May/Map/

UTF-8 is your friend, and everything in PRECIS is UTF-8.

The second bullet point should be "Case Mapping Rule".

Thanks!
