Editing plain html is way too bothersome and there aren't even any
browsers available that properly inplement the latest html standards,
let alone WYSIWYG programs to edit them.

Allowing html means allowing all html, not just the easy bits.  A
stripped down version of html is not html.  When inventing a protocol
for adding meta-data to e-mail it doesn't even make much sense to start
from html.
