All modern character sets are supersets of us-ascii, so that argument
doesn't really get us far :-(.
Personally I'd love it if send did something like:
(1) if text is entirely 7-bit: specify charset=us-ascii
(2) if environment specifies a non-ascii character set, use that
(3) assume charset=utf-8 (maybe allow this to be overridden in profile)
but I'm not sure anyone else cares enough about it.
