before I look at the details, I'd like to understand the intent.

You're saying this reflects roughly what Chrome is doing. Thanks for 
writing this down.

But exactly *why* would we consider this for the spec (I assume as 
recommended error recovery?)?

I note that you have handling of RFC2047-style encoding in there. That's 
something only Chrome and Firefox are doing, so I'd like to understand 
why you think it's needed, and whether you think 
Opera/Safari/Konqueror/IE should implement that (given the fact that 
changes the semantics of values that are valid).

Best regards, Julian
