Hi Emeric,

No.  The % character is parsed by the stroke plugin before the identity
is created.  So the actual identity is any at any.com and no IDr is sent.
If you have an email address that starts with % you could use the
following to parse it literally:

  rightid=email:%any at any.com


  rightid=@@%any at any.com
