Comment(by azaozz):

 Adding that would switch the way form data is sent by the browser, it
 turns it into a multipart MIME data stream (similar to an email with

 From RFC2388 http://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2388.txt
 The multipart/form-data encoding has a high overhead and performance
 impact if there are many fields with short values. However, in
 practice, for the forms in use, for example, in HTML (in 1998), the
 overhead is not significant.

 Not sure now much that would affect WordPress but seems many of our forms
 have "many fields with short values".
