Not very wrong since Encode is part of perl core.  For unicode-specific 
questions, there is yet another list called

You are right.  Encode does not have UTF-7 since I reckoned virtually 
no one is using it :)  And so far as I see there is no CPANized module 
that does that, though Punycode is already implemented in 
Encode::Punycode by Tatsuhiko Miyagawa.

So be our guest.  Go ahead implement one.  You should use 
Encode::Encoding as a base class as documented in perldoc
