RFC2047 is also applicable - it's responsible to the mangled addresses
you see sometimes if you MUA isn't aware of the proposed standard.
However, I don't think it should be applied to Date: headers.
Also, I note that RFC822 defines the day part of a date as only the
English names, not something like "Mið" (however that turns out when
TM and various MTA's get done with it). And the only valid
non-numeric time zones are: UT GMT EST EDT CST CDT MST MDT PST PDT, or
a single letter except J (not "BST").
RFC822 also seems to have a year-2000 bug.
