I don't see the how having UTF-8 inside _ASCII_ Armor can be justified. The
problem is that the ascii armor is going to be used in non-8but-clean
environments. Else, you'd use the binary format, no?
Because of that, I'm strongly in favour of stating that implementations MUST
NOT emit armor headers with non-US-ACSII characters in them.
Re: UTF-7. I understand that UTF-7 could be a solution. Only UTF-7 is widely
considered to be a big mistake, so it shouldn't be used anymore.
