RFC 2822 offers <dcontent> with <NO-WS-CTL>, the normative 
reference 2822upd-06 doesn't have a <dcontent>.  You're not
planning to fix this with an erratum, or are you ?

If that is intentionally the NULs could get their very own
security consideration.

Somebody asked where the 2821 Interop and Implemementation 
report mentioned in the Last Call is.  My own tests in 2007
only showed that (1) <NO-WS-CTL> in <dcontent> doesn't work,
I didn't test (7).  In 2007 I forwarded Dave's request for
reports to the ASRG, RFCI, and SPF devel mailing lists.
