Section 3.3 says:

The definition of <atext> is extended to permit both the RFC 5321
definition and a UTF-8 string. That string MUST NOT contain any
of the ASCII graphics or control characters.

It should say:

The definition of <atext> is extended to permit both the RFC 5321
definition and a UTF-8 string. That string MUST NOT contain any
of the Extended ASCII graphics (%d128-255) or control characters.

Notes:

The question is: what is "ASCII graphics characters"? Either meant that is possible to transmit 8bit characters, but they should not be in range %d128-255. Or something else. A better clarification is appreciated.
