I would not fancy a new protocol that is only to be supported by specific mail clients (I don't like multiple email adresses for different protocols). And I wonder if a new protocol that is to be supported by all major clients, would not yield the same problems. For example: I assume that screen readers are smart enough to handle MIME's multipart/alternative messages. However, currently some (or many) email clients (and notably many website newsletters as well) do not correctly include a text-only version of the message as well. I'm afraid the same would happen with a new protocol.

So, I'm afraid that a new protocol would have the same bad implementations. :-(

Or are there actually still email clients out there that do not, officially, support MIME?
