This allows all other mention of armour to be excised.

Understanding armour _isn't_ very hard; I'd prefer MUST,
especially since it's needed for backward compatibility with PGP 5.0
(in particular, the Encrypt Clipboard doesn't do MIME.)
Generating it is a matter of taste - will PGP 5.0 always accept MIME?
Even in applications like Decrypt/Verify Clipboard?
