[Nmh-workers] EAI?

Should nmh try to get out in front with email address
internationalzation (EAI)?  See resources below.

From the MUA perspective, IIUC, it relies on native support on the
host to handle unencoded UTF-8 addresses.  Would nmh support just be a
matter of 1) not encoding addresses (controlled by a switch) in
outgoing messages and 2) when showing a message, indicating that an
address couldn't be displayed?

Does anyone have experience using it?  Gmail supports it, according
to the article below.
