People who only read/implemented RFC 2616 need to be told that the rules 
changed. Similarly for people who read/implemented RFC 2046. Navigating 
through the maze of RFCs obsoleting each other is difficult for people 
who don't deal with them on a daily basis (and it is non trivial even 
for people who do). A reference to 
draft-ietf-appsawg-mime-default-charset would help with that.
