You mean to have bytes >127 ?  No, it's not allowed in any part of
the header.  Actually, I'm not sure it's "disallowed", but rather its
meaning falls out of the scope of the RFC.

Such headers appear occasionally, and IIUC Gnus decodes them with the
some default coding system, but I don't think it's high priority.
