[Imap-protocol] RFC 2192: what's a section?

RFC 2192 says (and RFC 2060 agrees):

section = section_text /
(nz_number *["." nz_number] ["." (section_text / "MIME")])

And section_text is defined as:

section_text = "HEADER" / "HEADER.FIELDS" [".NOT"]
SPACE header_list / "TEXT"

Do existing IMAP-URL implementations really allow URLs like foo/;UID=23/;SECTION=HEADER.FIELDS%20(Newsgroups%20Content-Md5%20Content-Disposition%20Content-Language%20Content-Location%20Resent-To%20Resent-Date%20Resent-From%20Resent-Cc%20Resent-Subject%20List-Help%20List-Unsubscribe%20List-Subscribe%20List-Post%20List-Owner%20List-Archive%20Followup-To%20References)?
