FTP as such doesn't assign any semantic on the syntax of usernames, but
very many FTP firewalls/proxies do...

The proposed user@host is in fact the most common FTP proxy method,
meaning connect as user on host, and to login using a user@host style
login via such proxy may be a little awkward if it at all works..
