In case of graphical MUA with graphical messages in them, I am of
opinion they open doors to various things and the majority happily
sees nothing.

Besides, once the html or any other non-pure text format takes over,
everybody will be receiving messages sized in megabytes if not worse,
whose human-readable content would be only few lines of text. Just
like modern web.
