Personally I don't remember any such messages which weren't spam, mostly with a russian address, 
and I can't see that a serious message to a mailing list will have fancy formatting in these two 
fields.  If you think I'm being dangerously harsh let me know.

I'd be cautious with that. I know that e.g. Google Mail can be set with one click to use UTF-8, 
and there are other mailers natively using UTF-8, so valid messages might indeed bear that 
charset. :)

I agree.  My mailer does, but the code for UTF-8 in the From and Subject fields appears to be some 
kind of html code.  Otherwise the UTF-8 coding appears somewhere in the header, I believe.  And 
I've never seen the string I quoted anywhere other than in these two fields.
