I think the practical answer is that most email is transferred over
TCP these days which is a stream of 8-bit bytes. You sort of get
8-bits for free without doing anything special. You have to work at
*not* supporting 8BITMIME. So the bar for this feature was very low.

So, what do you do if you have an 8-bit message and try to send it to a server which doesn't support 8BITMIME?

Summary: 8BITMIME has been irrelevant for years.
You send it.

+1,   we totally assume 8 bit!!  We have nothing that needs 7 bit masking.
