I don't see the ambiguity.  MIME encodes the data in US-ASCII, and the
script only contains the MIME-encoded data.  Sieve knows nothing about
the MIME-encoding of content passed e.g. to vacation: Its _type_ may be
a Klingon sound file, not even text data, but MIME-encoded Sieve only
sees US-ASCII.

I cannot see any restriction that would prevent use of Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8-bit, in which case the MIME parts are not necessarily US-ASCII and not necessarily UTF-8, e.g. a text/plain part with charset=iso8859-1.
