Re: How to handle a lot of character set Content-types

(b) add Content headers on behalf of dumb UAs;

Shades of Sendmail, Batman!

(c) Convert transport encoding to 7 bit where necessary and appropriate;
(d) Convert 7 bit encodings to 8 bit when sending to nearby UAs which 
the MTA knows can understand 8 bit but not Content headers. 

Yow!  More MTA majik!  We've been arguing back and forth about (c), but
(d) is downright nightmarish.

Why cannot it be allowed to add headers and do conversions, if this
is agreed upon between the communicating parties?
