Re: compressed content-transfer-encoding?

I think the standard should satisfy followings:
 - Content-Type must indicate the type of the body properly (of course)
 - any combination of Content-Type and C-T-Encoding should be possible
 - any order of recursive (nested) C-T-Encodings should be applicable

oh no, not this argument again...

Maybe I reinvented something rejected in past but I'm curious why using
message/rfc822 for nested encoding is not good.  

the more levels of encoding you have, the less chance you
have of being able to interoperate.
