Which do you think makes more sense for encapsulating John's CDAT data,
something that looks more like BDAT (length indicator), or something
that looks more like yEnc ("quoted unprintable")?

Definitely something like CDAT. Although the choice between a CDAT command
and session-level compression isn't clear to me.
