There's an installed base that finds localized 8-bit character sets in headers useful. That doesn't mean it interoperates or should be blessed in any way by a standard.

Unqualified local parts are not legal by 821 or 822. They should always be treated as a Sieve syntax error. Perhaps the protocol used to upload a Sieve script could provide a domain which clients may choose to append to unqualified local parts.
