Let me rephrase that.  I know (hope?) we aren't ditching 7but support.  My 
point is that 7bit and friends will be here almost forever, so there is no 
purpose to be served in arguing about supporting them.  We have to support it, 
fini.  As to what the defaults are, 8bit makes perfect sense.  But there must 
be a way to turn that off and fall back to a more conservative setting.  How 
and where that gets configured is indeterminate, but something associated with 
the MTA would make sense.  (Pine has a reasonable model for attaching 
parameters to the various transports.)
