Let "i;octet" work on characters and document the name is a misnomer.

IF someone really feels the need to specify and implement them: Introduce
Sieve extensions for a "i;binary" comparator that compares against a
string representation of binary data.  Introduce new tests "rawheader"
and "decodedheader".

I am not aware how "i;octet" is used at other places, so the above may
only fit well to Sieve.
Your suggestion make sense for header fields. But what about body extension when matching against application/* MIME part?
