I do not remember stating anything else. And, yes, I do know the
requirements in the RFCs.

Pretty much all that *tried* to work with you are -- gasp! --
developers. Still, you threw them all away.

Indeed. Since now I know I am not a developer, I guess I should not try
to ask you any questions. Even those that only I know.

Oh, you finally noticed, good. I thought, until now, that I was the only
one (and, probably, indeed, was).

Now, back to business.

I did send an email with a MDN request to André, and -- guess what? -- I
got my MDN. As I very much expected, by the way. I was already
suspecting the UTF-8 encoding in the headers (of André's name) as the
cause but, unfortunately, André was unable to understand it.

Ah well.

So now we know where it happens, and how to workaround the issue
meanwhile. I will even go ahead and test it on TB3, just for grins.
