(a) Sure there is--the protocol may not specify a way to transport them, but
you can store whatever you want.
(b) I suspect that iMIP might be able to express it with multipart/alternative
(you wouldn't necessarily want to send it to someone unless you know they can
handle it, since m/a isn't a mandatory part of MIME; but it can be done).

Not going to happen--the CUA can handle it internally, sure, but most of the
computers in the world simply do not have the fonts to render every single
character in Unicode.
