It is indeed unfortunate the the DRUMS WG did not find a way to solve
the 8-bit SMTP problem, but now is the time to get to it. There
should not be too much 7-bit SMTP code to fix by now.
One hidden gotcha is that although most MTA's are probably either 8-bit-clean
or fairly easily rendered so, there is *NOT* a widespread deployment of the
RFC3030 ESMTP extensions. As a result, you still get bit by the "need a
CRLF pair every 998 characters" problem.
