Conversion of all ASCII headers to utf-8 mime encoded should be banned. Apart
from testing encoding/decoding it serves no useful purpose and if you want
to perform such testing you can always add a non ASCII character.  MUAâ??s 
do this are deliberately breaking interoperability with old MUAs.

You apparently missed the part where the broken bot was quickly fixed...

(And now that I think about it, exmh was actually meta-buggy in that it
accepted a utf-8 encoded Mime-version: header rather than treat it as
a flat non-Mime mail...)
