MIME nesting

No technical justification has been offered for why PEM requires nested

Without nested encodings, there would be no natural way of indicating
WHAT was privacy-enhanced and therefore privacy-enhancement would
likely be limited to vanilla text.  Also, there are plenty of
"security types" that believe that the structure/content-type of a
message may be as sensitive as the content of a message.
