I figure if the message is going to be bounced, bounce it once and close 
to the source... so the source, if he's cooperative, can learn from the 
feedback and do something about it.

Having the end-user bounce back to the list maintainer just creates a 
lot of extra work for the list maintainer.

So you can either reject messages that aren't in usascii/latin (to an 
English language list), or transcode them.

As I see it, those are the two choices.
