I agree. I can't remember off the top of my head whether we handle this
case, but if we do, it will be by essentially just rewriting the
document to replace the link with an embedded <style>, extracted from
the email.

Known to whom? Signed and verified how? Trusted why? What standard of
sanitisation? What if different services (for some reason) require
different things to be sanitised to avoid conflicts? Not saying this
isn't an interesting idea, but there're a lot of difficulties to
overcome to make it work (and, of course, you still have the whole issue
of tracking with *any* remote content).
