IMO, no.  There are too many weird edge cases to be sure of getting this
right.  And discarding possibly useful information is not a good idea.

If you run a mailing list and you want everything to be in English, just
outright reject messages with bad encodings.  (The MIMEDefang list rejects
HTML and I haven't had many complaints about that.)
