Technical Summary
 
A message originator sometimes sends content in a form
the recipient cannot process.  Such content needs to be
converted to a related form, with the same or with
restricted information, such as changing from color to
black and white.  In a store-and-forward environment,
it can be convenient to have this conversion performed
by an intermediary.  This specification integrates two
ESMTP extensions and three MIME content headers, to
permit authorized, accountable content form conversion
by intermediaries.
