2.7. 7bit Data
"7bit data" refers to data that is all represented as relatively
short lines with 998 octets or less between CRLF line separation
sequences [RFC-821]. No octets with decimal values greater than 127
are allowed and neither are NULs (octets with decimal value 0). CR
(decimal value 13) and LF (decimal value 10) octets only occur as
part of CRLF line separation sequences.
