should it?  IMO, that high-level editor should leave it alone, since the
user typed it in explicitly as encoded words for a reason.  but this is
a UI question, really.

it may be a good idea to mention that when the MDA assembles the
vacation message, strings containing only US-ASCII and matching the
encoded word syntax must be left alone rather than being escaped.  this
means that if you want to use a verbatim encoded word as your full name,
you have to either include non-ASCII characters elsewhere, or encode the
string yourself.
