The "file upload" proposal (draft-ietf-html-fileupload-01.txt,
available in <URL:> and
<URL:> along with sources and a sample)
also proposes a new "multipart/form-data" for sending back form data
without URL-encoding it. "multipart/form-data" could be used as an
ENCTYPE even without any file capability as a way to send form results
to humans that is more intelligible.
