I think its premature to close 431 until we have agreed on the 
requirements. We discussed some potential requirements on the call 
(e.g. preservation of attachment order) that have implications for 
intermediaries.

If you want to separate the example in 431 from the more general issue 
of intermediary semantics that's fine, but even then I don't think we 
can close the new issue for the example until we have an agreed set of 
requirements - how can we know that its OK for intermediaries to shift 
data between attachments and inline until we know the set of 
requirements we are trying to meet ?
