What next? HTML to text, and text to HTML conversion programs in
coreutils?  This would probobly be more useful than dos2unix...

The argument doesn't wash - it's a wrong analogy, html and text are
different mime-types.
A DOS text file and a Unix text file are the same mime-type, plain
text, they just differ in line-endings, features of the OS.
