Regarding the description of the language in section 2.1, how does the 
following addition (based on text from Alexey) look:

       While this specification permits arbitrary octets to appear in
       sieve scripts inside strings and comments, this has made it
       difficult to robustly handle sieve scripts in user interfaces.
       The "encoded-character" capability (section provides an
       alternative means of representing such octets in strings using
       just US-ASCII characters.  As such, the use of non-UTF-8 text in
       scripts should be considered a deprecated feature that may be

That would be inserted as the third paragraph in that section and given 
additional indentation (ala the behaviors described in section 2.7.2).

this is good enough for me.  I think "deprecated" is stronger than
"SHOULD NOT" in practice :-)
