I don't look at the headers of every message I get, but I did check my
mailbox for examples when I was writing the RFC 2231 parser.  I have
never seen an extended MIME parameter on a Content-Type header "in the
wild", but I do see them all of the time on Content-Disposition headers
(when the filenames get really long).  So if you're not parsing the
Content-Disposition header, it doesn't surprise me that you'd never
encounter them; when you think about it, there really aren't that many
MIME parameters out there in common use.
