Yes. I also don't think that a serious mail client can tell it  
supports MIME Security with OpenPGP (3156)
if it does not decode base64 and quoted-printable.
As said earlier text parts that are attachments and which form should  
be preserved would be broken if you remove all trailing spaces.
Well, this strange RFC 3156 does not give recommendation for mail  
gateways that would change RFC 2822 headers.
