The <pre> per se is not an issue for format=flowed.  For example, one can just
change the styling on it to allow wrapping inside; the pre-wrap whitespace
style would work fine, for example.

The PLAINTEXT state would be more of a problem, since it doesn't do the
processing format=flowed needs to do (removing line breaks following spaces,
for example).  Also, to get the wrapping of quoted text right (and especially
the quoting) one probably needs to introduce more nodes into the DOM.

The big worry with that last bit is that some pages reach into text/plain DOMs
and muck with them last I checked.  Maybe that's rare enough that there are no
issues with modifying those DOMs slightly though.
