I don't think header-set is an appropriate whipping boy for the slowness of
the MIME standards & implementation process, though it may be the current
bottleneck in a few cases.  I know the MacMIME proposal has been
languishing since long before the header-set discussion began.  Ned at one
point indicated that he thought it would be a year before he would be
interested in supporting MacMIME, and that was when the proposal was
multipart/appledouble, before header-set was suggested.
