To my naive eye, it looks like a misfeature of imap.el.

My guess is that this design is inherited from pre-Mule times where
CRLF->LF decoding was better done once and for all in the
backend-agnostic code of Gnus.

In any case, I think you'll find that your functions are pretty
Gnus-specific, for that reason.
