I think I supplied reasoning but you waved it off. To me, that's no longer a
discussion (at least one I think I'd like to participate in) - hence it
would be pointless to continue.
It's okay, I'm not offended. :)

A major benefit to having HTML possible (hopefully without JS, such as done
in blogs.perl), is that you can do RTL and LTR easily. That means that if
someone prefers to write in Hebrew, but include code, she can do that
without effort. I would want her to be able to do that. I would want me to
be able to reply in Hebrew to an email someone wrote in Hebrew and include
sample code.

I'm not going to tattoo "text/html" on my head if that's what you're worried
about. :)
That is, I'm not married to it, but I do think it's a good idea.
