Word wrapping can occur at any length. I've seen it at
50 chars or so, which was pretty extreme.
The reason I say that the header lines SHOULD BE NO LONGER
than the ascii-armor is because if the wordwrap / slice
limit is less than the ascii-armor, then we're sunk anyway.
Although I suppose it is possible to strike a wordwrap
but not slice artifact.

Definately. I don't see any need to change the
format of the comments to solve this problem, it
seems to be thrashing a dead horse.
