Don't the MIME RFCs describe some behavior like noting that the message has an unknown character set?

Seems like putting an announcement about the character set at the top of the (displayed) file, and then refusing to decode quoted-printable might be the way to go.

I haven't looked at what charset and q-p decoding required, but some reasonable information about extending it, for users who regularly use something other than what hypermail knows about, seems like it would be nice.
