Don't forget Informational RFCs.  For example, RFC 1344 has
some very important advice for gateway implementors (and
that includes software which acts as a gateway, such as
message scanners).   Unfortunately some such implementors
have ignored 1344, resulting in problems:

Actually, neither RFC 1344 nor RFC 2046, in my opinion, draw sufficient attention to this problem. In both cases, I would be happier if we had said something in the security considerations about the necessity to reassemble message/partials into their "parent" message before applying any security-related content scans.
