Indeed. This is Bug #162098.

Apparently they have not decided about it yet. Sad.

The default threshold is 5. Most of the few legitimate emails I see
over 4 contain HTML stuff. If we reduce the threshold to 4, for
example, the user will still be able to disable HTML in his email
client and resubmit if he/she sees the post does not reach the list.

IMHO, for a mailing list, the emphasis should be put on avoiding false
negatives, not false positives.
