Nope, you should really scan over RFC 2368 before trying to argue with 

     mailtoURL  =  "mailto:" [ to ] [ headers ]
     to         =  #mailbox
   "#mailbox" is as specified in RFC 822 [RFC822]. This means that it
   consists of zero or more comma-separated mail addresses, possibly
   including "phrase" and "comment" components. Note that all URL
   reserved characters in "to" must be encoded: in particular,
   parentheses, commas, and the percent sign ("%"), which commonly occur
   in the "mailbox" syntax.

There's no such thing as a "core address".
