I will also add that I personally have no real preferences about any of this. 
simply want a specification I can implement without a lot of trouble. The
current reject/ereject specification looks fairly reasonable to me - my one
quibble is where it says that when UTF-8 Is downgraded to US-ASCII in order to
respond at the  SMTP level the user SHOULD be informed. Short of sending the
user a message sauing that this has been done I have no idea how to do that 
I really don't think users will appreciate getting such messages notifying 
of how rejected mail is handled.

Agreed. For a while I had a very nice error report that read:

    Your script encountered a message that could not be parsed,
    and delivered the message to your Inbox.

This was a _very stupid idea_ -- it basically amplified spam. I suspect
the same scenario here.

I'll drop this text unless someone really wants to keep it.
