Please do (and no, I don't think I raised a bug report for those after 
seeing the response on 
<http://code.google.com/p/chromium/issues/detail?id=118>, but see 
comment #5 over there).

Note that I asked multiple browser vendors not implementing RFC 2231 a 
few years ago, and they complained about vagueness (which encodings do 
we need to support?) and unneeded complexity (continuation lines). We 
fixed those in RFC 5987.

Best regards, Julian
