Most MTA/MTUs these days can handle 8bit just fine.  I think that the CTE for MIMEText parts should default to 8bit unless policy.must_be_7bit is set.  This will require adding support for this CTE to Charset.  The Policy docs imply that this is already the case, but it is not true for MIMEText objects.

I've changed my approach.  The policy option is now 'cte_type', but moreover the default policy is now a backwards compatibility policy to which this issue doesn't apply.  The new provisional policy should get this support, but that's a somewhat bigger project and probably won't make it in to 3.3.

This is now done, in the new email API that was just made no longer provisional.
