The technical details of RFC1652bis must cite MIME AND SMTP, of course.  However 
it happens that the details do not absolutlely need to cite RFC5322.

However it strikes me as too strange to have a standard that pertains to message 
objects not cite the /message/ standard.

I'd like to have RFC5322 cited at the time MIME is cited, as Ned suggested 

   particular, a significant portion of the Internet community wishes to
   exchange messages in which the content body consists of a MIME
   message [RFC2045][RFC2046][RFC 5322] containing arbitrary octet-aligned

Does anyone object?
