Thank you. That is how it seems to me as well.

Hmmmm. Not sure I like that idea much.
I'd rather have a definite signal that 2022 is in use, such as using
"charset=ISO-2022" or something. I know that ISO-2022 isn't really the
same as a charset, but in my ignorance I do not see how using the charset
parameter to label something as 2022 would be harmful, assuming 2022
generally conforms to the "text" content-type model. (If, like raw
Unicode, it can use CRLF to mean something beside newline, then it needs a
new top-level type, IMO.)
