One thing I'm not totally sure about is the encoding of space and 
">".  I added a note to the ABNF section that says that these 
characters are encoded according to the charset, but as I recall, 
during the discussions on how f=f can work with non-Western 
languages/charsets, especially Chinese, Japanese and Korean, it was 
mentioned that ASCII space is sometimes used in some of these 
languages.  So perhaps the statement needs to include the possibility 
that space might be encoded in ASCII as well?

I guess the question is what to do when there is more than one way to
represent the space character and/or ">", as can certainly happen 
when using iso-2022 code-switching.
