Subaddressing and targets is a bit hazy in the spec. I think you will
find that target=acme.*.*:>
Will match, and that the usual wildcard constructs can be applied after
the ":"

This is correct in the first case. The second case is a bit of a grey
area.

Apply two filters in turn, one for the non-subbed case and one for the
subbed case?
Or tighten up the spec so that the behaviour of wild cards and sub-addrs
is rigorous!
