It's fine for 90% of what people normally want to do.  It's
just the rest of the stuff ... like creating multiparts like
multipart/alternative, or external-body references, or if you want to
create HTML and specify the Content-ID of attachments exactly.  Not
many people want to do that, it's true.  I'm not sure how we do that in
headers easily.
