With the minor drawback that it doesn't actually work, hence this bug report.

IMO fixing that method is too much work for too little gain.

What I proposed is what both VM and Gnus do AFAIK.

rmailedit as a whole seems overly complex to me. If I were doing it,
I'd copy the expanded message text to a new buffer for editing, rather
than re-using the rmail buffer. Aborting an edit would just kill the
buffer. Saving an edit would compare the buffer text with the region
between msgbeg and msgend in rmail-view-buffer, and swap it in if it
differed, then call rmail-show-message.
