"All generalizations are wrong" (Mark Twain, I think?)

I work on a codebase that includes a server and multiple client implementations that support and actively use RFC2047 encoded headers. Not that I'm arguing WSGI should support it as a result; the clients and server are mostly only useful for talking to each other. But, for any given weird (mis)feature in a widely implemented spec, you can bet someone somewhere thought it was a good idea to implement it...
