This seems like a failing in 'git am' rather than anywhere else.
quoted-printable is a reasonable way to send files by email, even if a
bit OTT for 7-bit clean ASCII, and to store them in an mbox.

I prefer using git send-email (or hg email) to post patch series, as it
automates a tedious and fiddly task, but I don't think we can or should
require it.
