I would wholeheartedly be in favor of that course, as long as we:

* thoroughly document what we're doing, explaining why we're doing it;
* publicize what we're doing; and
* encourage others to follow suit.

I don't think waiting for an RFC 2046 replacement would be productive, 
but I also don't think it's helpful if we do this in some dark, obscure 
corner. Let's do the Right Thing, yet try to get everyone to follow.
