(Lifting snippets from here and there) How does this sound?
Textual passwords (consisting of a character sequence with a known character set and encoding) SHALL be transferred as [UTF-8] encoded [Unicode].
The determination of whether a password is textual is a local client matter.
Prior to transfer, clients SHOULD prepare text passwords by applying the [SASLprep] profile of the [Stringprep] algorithm.
Passwords consisting of other data (such as random octets) MUST NOT be altered.
Sounds ok for me.
