You meab it would convert semi-colon into commas and convert addresses into pills on the fly?

> Eventually we want to support group syntax 

How using semi-colon as separator prevent group syntax?

Is there an RFC or other reference that indicate/recommand semi-colon as email separator for group/distribution list?

Is your idea to be able to create an auto-completion group by just typing email addresses separated by semi-colon?

You may be right on this, maybe then accept it as a valid separator but don't encourage it...?

This would bring flexibility - some email client use semi-colon as separator or accept it as alternative to coma...

Unless if course you have other plan/idea...
