}There are ways of dealing with this (use UTF-7, or MIME

It is interesting that MIME offers a fair number of useful ways to
deal with these labeling problems, but that somehow HTTP does not
easily accept the use of MIME as it is specified.  

I hope that at least the instances of http omitting the "Content-"
part of MIME header tags (e.g., Transfer-Encoding) has been solved in
http 1.1 or 1.2.  

(NO!  I am not trying to start another food fight;-).
(I am just lamenting how little omissions caause big problems!)

In the meantime, MHTML WG is trying to provide a clean MIME envelope
for tranismssion of native HTML...
