It does matter because the output from mhfixmsg can be a
message in an MH folder.  (You could use mhstore(1) to just
extract content, of course.)

It does.  At this point, I don't understand your problem.
mhfixmsg adds text/plain parts all the time for me.  A
significant fraction of my incoming mail is text/html.
It's all handled properly, even if the original content is
binary, and then I see the same warning as you.

I would need to see exactly what you're trying to do if you
want me to investigate further.  Offline?
