mhfixmsg doesn't currently support either of those.  It's not clear to me how 
to determine "can be reasonably translated to utf-8".  We've discussed this 
here recently, and Ralph raised the counterexample of an html page relying on a 
particular charset.

And I'll resist making the tool even more complicated by adding interfaces to 
select which parts to touch.  So it's none or all, unless there would be a real 
benefit to translate only specified parts.
