User Story:

As a data analyst that works with persons from around the world. It is challenging when the meaning of email address in data views does not currently correctly take into account local parts of email addresses (the part before the @) that includes characters beyond ASCII. The use of UTF-8 strings has been defined since at least 2012 and providers like gmail are allowing such strings to appear in the local part of an email address. Fixing this will allow more accurate evaluation of email addresses in a dataset, and fewer confessions as to data quality.

    P.S. I know that I could create a local definition for email address as an interim work around. This is a request for the "standard" defined meaning in DSS to reflect these later standards.
