Makes senses.  I'll see if gnus does something sensible that we can use.
Otherwise, we could detect the charset/encoding used in the current
buffer and use that in the header, e.g.

MIME-Version: 1.0
Content-Type: text/plain; charset="iso-8859-1"
Content-Transfer-Encoding: 8bit

It's on my MH-E ToDo list now.  :-)
