It is not just a question of tooling, it is a matter of processing on devices that either sit as part of the message path (proxies) or have limited ability either as user agent or ultimate destination.

I have probably spent years of my professional life analyzing data on the wire so I sympathise with the desire to inspect data easily, but I don't accept this as a constraint on the solution, only a tiebreaker. There are enough ways for tools to solve the problem and infact I see a lot of value in having motivation for the creation of more tools to support data inspection.
