client that sends 8-bit addresses violates SMTP. Just like a client
that sends 8-bit message content without negotiating 8BITMIME.
The behavior for out-of-spec input is undefined. Postfix will
usually try to deliver it as is (and can often be configgured to
reject it). I can promise only that out-of-spec input will not
result in a security exploit in Postfix itself.
To reject 8-bit addresses you'd need a PRCE or REGEXP pattern.
Cleaning up 8-bit addresses belongs in the client; it should not
send 8-bit addresses unless the server announces support for that.
