Thanks - I'm convinced.
I would suggest adding another NOTE: to section 6.1.1, just so that I
won't forget again :-):

NOTE: The reason for this restriction is that when mail gateways or agents
handle text in the canonical form, they should have the freedom to convert
into and out of their local newline convention without loss of information.

(funny - didn't we put this in somewhere else, too? C-T-E 7bit?
Same argument, same text, different context)
