[RCD] iconv //TRANSLIT or //IGNORE?

Now we are using //TRANSLIT option (if supported) for charset 
conversions. For messages like this one 
This is not a good solution. Some messages (this one too) contains 
unconvertable sequences. If conversion fails message is displayed as is. 
For some charsets this is not acceptable. Thunderbird, for example, 
displays this message properly decoded.

So, question is: should we use //IGNORE instead of //TRANSLIT? Maybe for 
non-latin charsets only?

ps. //TRANSLIT//IGNORE doesn't work.
