It's not just postfix, it's at least courier and sendmail and various
propiertary MTA's do conversions when encountering default configured

It would be a RFC violation to just pass 8bit mails to servers not
advertizing 8bitmime. It would be rfc compatible to the sending server
to bounce instead of qp-converting 8bit mails, but that would arguably
be even worse.

That would be a rfc violation as well.
