I quoted too little of section 2.2 in my previous reply. Section 2.2
A field body may be composed of any US-ASCII characters,
except for CR and LF. However, a field body may contain CRLF when
used in header "folding" and "unfolding" as described in section

Here too I overstated. RFC822 also restricts header field body
characters in the same way as RFC2822.
In any case, the point that the standards do not allow characters
greater than #127 in headers is valid.
