Shouldn’t both these MIME tags require canonical CRLF line endings? How else are the line endings going to end up correctly?

Makes me wonder about major type 3 too.  My understanding is that Unicode handles line endings like ASCII, it is neutral and happy to have CR, LF or CRLF so type 3 is neutral.

Text files are somewhat less common these days, but git still does conversion. CBOR could have a tag that indicates something is text with canonical CRLF line endings.
