Seems like I missed that commit when I started making similar edits.  I don't think we've created any conflicts.

However, I've reverted the following change:

RFC 2231 defines a (relatively obscure) encoding for content type *parameters* that are non-ASCII.  That reference doesn't fit here, and frankly, I don't think it adds anything useful to Signature.
