I want my email client to display emails the way *I* want to read them, 
not the way *you* want me to see them. The former case is doable, the 
latter case impossible with the variety of devices and configurations.

So there is absolutely no need to interpret what the author wanted me to 
see. All I need is more options in my client.

Of course if what your goal is the latter case then you don't have much 
choice other than restrict everyone to a specific set of rules and 
software, cutting yourself from the practices of the rest of the world. 
Good luck with that.

I'll leave it at that, we just have different views on how emails should 
be consumed.

Cheers,
