Our composer implementation currently has a to-do for us to expose addressparser into the front-end MailAPI code context so we can parse the e-mail addresses we receive via the mailto protocol.  Since we probably want to normalize things in terms of detecting contacts, etc.  I think the right course of action is to expose an asynchronous API, possibly as part of the compose context setup, which will parse the addresses up using addressparser and do any contacts-resolving.

Bug 837255 is an instance of where this is definitely an issue.
