Umm, no, I don't think it's that simple.
The way email is used as a medium has changed. Nowadays the only kind
of mail client many people have ever used is webmail. And ever since
Outlook Express appeared on the scene with top-posting as default
quoting styles have gone down the drain.
Most non-nerds I know have no idea what different quoting styles exist
and have never used or even seen proper interleaved quoting.

Does not sound like a bad idea..
