As intended.  See RFC 2849, in particular the formal
syntax and last sentence of note 4.   Also note that
implementations are free to Base64 any value.  We've
found it generally desirable for interchange purposes
to Base64 any value which contains non-ASCII characters
or ASCII non-"printable" characters.  That is, some
of the characters RFC 2849 considers "safe" are not
all that safe.
