Yeah, I've been thinking about that.  When I sent out my hand-encoded
subject line last month the replies were interesting ... clearly some MUAs
handle it differently than others (some replies had the whole Subject
line encoded with windows-1252).  I'm not sure there's a "good" solution;
I think we'll just have to see how things work in practice.  Although since
I'm now UTF-8 aware I think I would personally prefer to see the actual
decoded UTF-8 characters in my draft.
