BDAT is part of the CHUNKING extension defined in experimental RFC
1830 in 1995. It's been 11 years. Does anyone use it? Has anyone
even proposed making it standards track? I don't ever recall running
into it, so I don't see any point in worrying about it.
We may well end up using the DKIM key infrastructure for signatures of
other things, but it's going to take a lot more than deciding which
line endings to ignore to make that happen.
PS: If anyone ever updates that RFC, it's now called Chongqing.
