Re: transfer-encodings on subtypes of "message"

after digging through a level or two of confusion, I find (as usual) that we 
agree pretty much.

The problem as I see it seems to be the same as you see: The case where a 
message/foo with 8bit or Binary encoding arrives at an 8-to-7 gateway; this 
was not clear enough in my earlier prose.

I like your solution - it specifies a nice, clean algorithm to implement in 
gateways, and leaves the burden of pssibly recursively encoded message/foo 
types where it belongs - in UAs that want to deal with newly defined types.
