At least several major implementations (Microsoft Explorer,
Netscape and Eudora) have implemented multipart/alternative
with a plain text and a html alternative as suggested in
the info draft. But this need of course not mean that they
have read the document.

I am quite sure there are issues to discuss in the informational
draft, i.e. that there are controversial recommendations in it.
Certain things which initially were in the standard, and which
were removed because they were controversial, have been moved
to the informational document, and they might be controversial
also in that document.

Should I write a list of what I believe are the most controversial
points in the INFO document?
