I think you name all you need, no etc. Message body + attachments, and
type + encoding for those. I even doubt encoding. The message itself is in
Unicode, and attachments could simply be treated as binaries..

I think its somewhat difficult to fully shield from the user unless you
stick to ascii emails.
Otherwise you need to inform the email tools as to what the content-type,
encoding, attachments etc are.

Is MIME something a user needs to care about? (i.e. isn't that something
that can be shielded from the user?)

It's tempting to try to make something simple. The simple cases seem
to be covered by


Though that's clearly been stalled for, uh, 9 years.

The problem with the less simple cases is handling all of the MIME
encoding/disposition/id/boundary/etc. malarkey.

We have machinery for (at least some of) MIME, in p:http-request, but
that seems to set the bar pretty high for the simple case.
