I agree!  A similar topic was just discussed on the ding mailing list.
A better solution may be to somehow visually highlight the hidden
text.  That may sound like a contradiction, but of course, it should
only happen that way in the mail buffer, so makes some sense.

Could work.  But if, say, message uses the invisible property
internally to keep some hidden data around in the buffer, cut'n'paste
within the message buffer can generate unexpected result.
