So?  We are not sending that text as-is to any MTA, are we?  We are
just processing the text locally.  So we don't need to comply to MIME
standards, do we?

I think it eases further processing elsewhere in RMAIL.  IIRC, many
RMAIL functions need to access the headers and the body separately.

Of course, it is also possible to avoid that reformatting, but then
your job will become much bigger, I think.
