Speeking mostly for my self, 
translating the message text would not be a bad thing, but MIME ATTACMENTS
are NEEDED so we can exchange code patches and scripts where the formatting
of the data matter.

i.e., if someone needs to send an attachment that is MIMEed, no problem, but
the message body should be ASCII text.
