A few objections:
* As you note, on this list you could reasonably argue that most
people view mail with a monospaced fonts.
* Unless a mailer is reflowing text, displaying text in proportional
face is going to screw up line widths. If you're reflowing stuff
other than format=flowed, you're going to screw up mail. Either
way, programs that do this clearly don't care about readability.

Are there any HTML renderers with non-crappy layout engines?
