This mailing list destroys DKIM signatures.

And doing so causes serious problems. Significant effort is underway to address
this in the DMARC WG.

So: presumably transcoding from 8BITMIME to 7 bit has all the same
problems, no?

If it were happening now, yes, absolutely.

But somehow 8BITMIME became common enough for everyone
to just assume 8 bit transmission now.

Because the transition happened literally decades before DKIM existed.
