Yep, that's about what I thought :)

Everyone knows about 822, but only schmucks like me who love arcane
technical trivia know about obsoleting RFCs like 2822 :)

As Michael Price pointed out, not a lot has changed. 2822 is a
little stricter in some areas. Achieving 822 compliance solves the
80/20 rule for you, so don't sweat it :)
