The relevance of i74 (at least before that issue got split; the  
relevant issue is now 111) is that it allows RFC2047 encoding  
explicitly.

It'll still match the BNF, of course...

I'm writing a proposal for 111 now; I'll write it in terms of modifying
    Reason-Phrase  = *( VCHAR / WSP )
so that you can proceed with this independently.

Cheers,
