I think David already gave a few examples that concur with your statement,
but perhaps good to come up with some (briefly described) use cases?

-        Application needs to send processing failure notifications to
application manager, plain text message, log attachment (what details need
to be passed along these two?)


Kind regards,

I think it depends on how you define "user".  If you're talking about the
XProc developer, then I'd suggest, no, if she's going to be developing an
application to send emails, she's going to have to know about it, to some
extent, if only to facilitate debugging.

Is MIME something a user needs to care about? (i.e. isn't that something

It's tempting to try to make something simple. The simple cases seem
to be covered by


Though that's clearly been stalled for, uh, 9 years.

The problem with the less simple cases is handling all of the MIME
encoding/disposition/id/boundary/etc. malarkey.

We have machinery for (at least some of) MIME, in p:http-request, but
that seems to set the bar pretty high for the simple case.
