He was simply suggesting to do away with strict rfc2822 compliance.
After all, it's common for email headers to contain latin-1 text without
encoding it with QP as it should.  Most MTAs will preserve this 8bit
info, and most MUAs will try and do something useful with it (like
assume it's encoded in the locale's favorite encoding).

It'd most likely be controlled by a config var, since it's useful but
somewhat dangerous.
