Accessibility aside, it would be very inconvenient to receive a mail one
actually wants to read in HTML format. HTML format is useful because it
identifies the mail as having an 99% chance of either being Spam or
ill-informed ramblings that aren't worth reading.

If people were to start sending useful stuff in HTML format it would mean
that people would have to start actually reading HTML mails rather than
binning them on sight or through filters.
