Nor me, lack of caffeine or something.  My next attempt was
RFC 5237, but BCP 37 "IANA Allocation Guidelines for the
Protocol Field" also isn't related to UTF-8 and iso-8859-1.

Eventually I tried RFC 5137 arriving at BCP 137:  "ASCII 
Escaping of Unicode Characters".  That is what I wanted :-)

Using hex. NCRs for Link titles might be a good idea, after
all they are also supposed to work in the link attributes
of link elements.  But I'm worried about picking different
techniques depending on the header field.
