A bit late, since php-email-validator is on its way into experimental:

Starting with Symfony 2.5 the validator component knows about a "strict"
mode for validating email addresses [1]. If we do not provide
php-email-validator, the strict mode email validation is of no use. Thus
in my opinion it was worth adding php-email-validator to Debian rather
than disabling the tests written for the new strict validation mode.


P.S.: Thanks for packaging and uploading php-email-validator.
