I've been told the entries should be machine parseable, without free
form text such as that. Also the reason a URI was deemed the right
choice for "B:", because it doesn't preclude an email address.

I'm frustrated and annoyed because I've been trying to get "B:" merged
since the beginning of the year, and there was enough bikeshedding that
I gave up in disgust for months, and now that Andrew picked the stuff up
I thought we had some closure. But no, all that bikeshedding in vain,
something else was merged at rc7 instead.

I don't have the time for this. I hope the bug reporters who'll be told
to report the bugs somewhere else do.
