Perhaps so, but my impression is that it uses various features that are
only in message-mode, so mail-mode and the generic mail interfaces
would have have to be buffed up quite a bit to make this possible.

One thing Stefan pointed out, BTW, is that message-mode has better mime
support, in particular, it supports mime attachments.  I use these a
_lot_, and my impression is that many other people do as well (mail-mode
supports a sort of ad-hoc attachment function, but it's basically just
`insert-file', and far less useful than real mime attachments).
