Well, I don't see how the mere addition of a new subtype could break any 
reasonable application, so if this is the bar, then there is no problem.

However, I do not believe that the current situation is very good here.   If 
content providers are to use this new class effectively they will want to 
associate information with emails, and the properties from CreativeWork do not 
seem to be adequate.  For example, how is one to add to and cc information, 
and keep them straight?
