Actually, let me take that a step further - you *always* need to be able to
deal with the usage case "Hey, let me forward you the note that Fred sent
me last month on this - it has everything you need attached".

Which means you need to either keep Fred's actual message around, or enough
information to regenerate the message.  And if Fred included a digital
signature or encryption, then you need to be able to cope with that as well.
