Sheesh, you actually want me to read the thing? Oh, all right.
In 4.4.5, delete " Signers
of MIME messages that include a body length count SHOULD be sure that
the length extends to the closing MIME boundary string."
Also delete the subsequent INFORMATIVE IMPLEMENTATION NOTE.
The note earlier in the section says the bad guy can replace the displayed
contents, so I don't think we need to say it again.
