That sounds great. We might disagree about details, but it is important that we actually talk about the disagreements and work out how to make life a bit better for people who are trying to use HTML in email...

As a practical matter, some MUAs are going to have to use URL-rewriting to make this cid: logic work, which means a general agreement as to what can (/should) be allowed to specified via a cid. E.g., <img src>, <video><source>, CSS url(), <link href>, etc.
