That is really bad API :-( User of Email::MIME is really not interested
in getting RAW header and then manually converting it to some object
(provided by parse_mailboxes), then putting it back to Email::MIME
object... Email::MIME is there for doing whole MIME encoding/decoding
and basically user should not need to call any RAW method (only in case
when he needs to manually encode/decode MIME parts).
And I would expect from Email::MIME to do that encoding/decoding also
for From, To, CC... headers...
