Bob, thanks. I spent the last ten years of my life lurking in W3C WGs
on behalf of at least three different companies, and worked on email
and in particular multimedia email before.
If I follow you correctly, PNG should never have emerged from W3C.

You don't get it. You don't get it at all. There is no need to make HTML
usable as email content. It **is** email content. It's not a request,
it's a fact. Like it or not, the consortium has to deal with it.
