Yes. Perhaps we should make the condition be "do this if the
incoming draft does not already have MIME headers" ? That
way if the user has script-type solutions that pass an
already-sensible draft to send we don't mess it up.

quoted-printable encoding before I could send this mail with nmh,
in a passing demonstration of our poor MIME handling :-))
