I don't see how that follows, but any file that has to represent the
full range of Emacs characters has to be stored in the internal
encoding.  I don't know what the rationale is for any of this, or why
rmail uses emacs-mule now.

I doubt you should do anything to them, especially as you have no
assurance any headers are correct.
