HTTP header charset restrictions are too tight

My reading of RFC 2616 (HTTP/1.1 spec) says that we're being too tough in our HTTP header handling. Section 4.2 says values can include text and quoted strings. Section 2.2 defines text (and quoted strings) to include any octet except some control characters.
Django currently insists that header values are in the ASCII range, which looks to be too small.
(This is a follow-up to #5956).
