Yes, evidently... take into account that SMTP is defined in RFC821 or, 
the newer release, in RFC2821, which states:
      "MAIL FROM:" ("<>" / Reverse-Path)
                       [SP Mail-parameters] CRLF

and, if you are to implement an SMTP client or server, you are expected 
to follow it.

RFCs 1846 & 2645 define extensions to the SMTP protocol (in fact, 1846 is 
considered merely experimental) but are not expected to define 
incompatible basic protocol functioning... so you could say that they 
were "sloppy" written :-)
