Can the following header:

Content-Type: multipart/mixed; boundary="abcedfghiu"

be folded in the following way:

content-type: multipart/mixed; bounary="abced

That is to say can the value in parameter"="value be
folded ?

Technically the answer is no, it can't. RFC822 allows breaks only at LWSP,
and the syntax of the boundary parameter doesn't include any.

How can a pure RFC 822 know that Content-type is something else
than just a field with an unstructured body?
