to recap the question: why does my decode-multipart-form-data not
use (or even parse) the "Content-Transfer-Encoding" header.
actually, your assumption "not defined by Andreas and never
encountered in the reality ???" holds true :) although i'm well aware
of the various mime, multipart mime and related specs, in practice i
never encountered a browser that actually uses
"Each part may be encoded and the "content-transfer-encoding"
header supplied if the value of that part does not conform to the
default encoding" (RFC 1867, section 3.3)
the whole content-transfer-encoding stuff stems from the email
background. as said before, i've never encountered it when using HTTP
forms with multipart/form-data encoding.
