if possible please keep that part generic enough to also work for
pgp/mime (https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc3156). i strongly suspect that
there's fewer hoops to jump through for pgp/mime than for s/mime, so
supporting both shouldn't be onerous.

i'm not entirely sure how you envision that split between nmh and 'other
tools' to work, because you mention both generating s/mime messages
and mhstore at the same time.
