Comment (by david.binda):

 Yeah, that's correct. The tests I provided were more a demonstration than
 tests :) Sorry for the confusion.

 However, in case a plugin is overriding the `wp_mail` function (as it's a
 pluggable function), the `is_email` won't be set as a validator.

 That's why I was originally proposing to set the validator outside the
 `wp_mail` function, so it would affect all other usages, even in case the
 function is overridden, or the PHPMailer's instance is being used
