I agree except I'd say "keep" instead of "encode": it should preserve
the `mbox' content byte-for-byte which is sometimes difficult to do when
you do decode+encode.

BTW MIME mail can contain several parts with different encodings in each
one of them, so it's a bit misleading to say talk about "the buffer's
coding system" unless each part is displayed in another buffer, which
is undesirable in the general case.
