Well, true, but a consistent markup indicating what is quoted, and 
(and least in general) where from, is quite useful. format=flowed 
provides this, as does HTML (although very few email clients generate 
the properly marked up HTML the specs say to use for email, which is 
exceedingly well marked up).

There's a lot to be said for good application of common sense, though.
