(I also wouldn't call this an operational change to how PGP signs
things -- the actual signing doesn't change.  We're simply talking
about the MIME wrapping done by the mail user agent.)

It _is_ an operational change, since the "pre-draft" proposes to label 
utf-8 data with us-ascii. MUAs will not be prepared to decode UTF-8 
when the Content-Type says "us-ascii"...


They [RIAA,MPAA] are trying to invent a new crime:
interference with a business model.
