Why did we choose to URL encode field names within these headers?  The only
thing that RFC 2388, the multipart/form-data specification, has to say about
encoding of field names is:

>    Field names originally in non-ASCII character sets may be encoded
>    within the value of the "name" parameter using the standard method
>   described in RFC 2047.

RFC 2047, Message Header Extensions for Non-ASCII Text, appears to discuss the
use of quoted-printable encoding.  The cases we are concerned about a clearly
not non-ASCII, but this does seem to directly conflict with our decision to URL
encode the field names.
