I'd rather use a less arbitrary scheme.  E.g.
- only accept unchanged safe chars (rather than rule out
  dangerous ones), e.g. [:alnum:] and maybe a couple more.
- everything else encoded following quoted-printable.

Of course, QP applies to bytes, not to chars, which also points to
a potential problem with [:alnum:] since it includes multibyte chars
which may also be rejected, but I think that would be safe enough for
a start.

I'd include it in 22.2, tho it depends on the final shape of the code.
