I was not aware of this. It is clearly better than my old proposal of
wrapping the entire message into a message/rfc822 container:
- Less overhead.
- Likely to be more compatible with more mailers.
- Does exactly what we want to do.
- Still allows to use a code-phrase subjects so that
decrypting only for the thread view is not required.
I do not think there is much need to standardize what headers need to go
there. MUA authors should decide or make if configurable. A de-facto
standard will soon show up anyway.
Die Gedanken sind frei. Ausnahmen regelt ein Bundesgesetz.
