I strongly prefer this style. It fits the way I do
copy'n'paste of selected email addresses.

If I want to add Rafael in a Cc: line I have to
anually add "" to surround his name due to the "J." and I
have to manually add <>.
Typing in his email address is a no no - and I can spell
to Wysovski correct only a few times a day.
