Separation of trivial is all a matter of who you are talking to. People 
understand foo at to mean an individual email address. Most think of a 
website when they see <> or, as a technical detail to you or me, causes them
to wonder why they have
to go to that site first and then what they have to do when they get there 
and.... the unsurities and anxietys of the unknown technology are more than 
worth the effort to regex an @ to . if it now means "oh, Ive used my email 
address before to log in to a site... thats easy...

all of this means higher adoption rate and I would bet that rate difference 
to be quite considerable
