Weeeelll .... maybe.

If you're willing to live with mhbuild directives, you can do this as
documented in the mhbuild man page:

#<text/plain; charset=utf-8

at the beginning of your draft (and make sure you run "mime").

The _other_ option is to make sure your draft headers contain a
MIME-Version header; if mhbuild sees that header, it will assume that
the draft is already a properly-formed MIME message and when you send
the message it won't do any further MIME processing; that would prevent
your supplied Content-Type header from being overwritten.
