This Standards Track document replaces RFC5322, specifies the Internet Message
Format (IMF), a syntax for text messages that are sent between computer users,
within the framework of "electronic mail" messages. This document is
well-written. It is almost ready for publication from the INT area perspective.
A couple of Nits is listed below:

It is not needed to list RFC2822 & RFC822, the historic documents far before
RFC5322. The history can be tracked just from the mentioning of RFC5322.

The quoting format is not following the normal RFC setting. The format of
requiring language boilerplate is also containing errors.

It is recommended to replace quoting label, such as BCP14, STD13, STD18, by
normal RFC +number.
