Re: 8bit & binary

The statement was that there should be a requirement that readers must
recognize the 7bit, 8bit, and binary content-transfer-encodings.  This
means that they must perform the relevant (trivial) decoding
step--they are prohibited from treating such
content-transfer-encodings as "unrecognized".

It does not mean they are required to be able to handle 8bit data or
binary data--that is something else entirely.
