Or we just accept that HTTP/1.1 implementations do not follow HTTP/1.1
encoding specifications anyway for non-ascii data and simply say that
when I18N  field values need to be gatewayed to HTTP/1.1 then send them
as UTF-8 even if HTTP/1.1 specifications says otherwise, intentionally
overriding HTTP/1.1 specifications.

Sure it will break some to fix some (and mainly authentication), but
it's not really such a big deal. In the end it's about the same amount
of breakage as today, only different and more consistent.

But it's a bad idea to open for I18N in field names.
