Agreed - my main concern is ensuring that the stream conforms to UTF-8 abnf
- i.e. the characters are all valid. I don't really care whether the 'raw'
unfolded text displays well or not in a text editor. After all, even in the
absence of combining characters, the folding can occur in the middle of a
word and the result may be nonsensical or even worse appear to be two valid
words giving a different meaning to what was meant.
