That is false. RFC2047 encoding can just be interpreted as plain text.
And if that is ugly, so are UTF-8 glyphs that just don't happen to be in
the local font.

No, UTF8_LANG indicates clearly that the tag is associated with UTF8
data. I don't want to encourage people to use Shift-JIS and Big5
encodings for tags by giving them a tag like TAGS_LANG. If people want
to use Shift-JIS they can encode it using RFC2047.
