It makes a lot of sense to me.  It just makes it so much easier to
write longer responses (which I know RMS doesn't do very often :-)

Now, I use message-mode rather than mail-mode, so as long as the
change is specific to mail-mode, I don't care too much.

Message mode already has numerous faces to play with...

I fail to see the rationale for extending mail-mode, when we
already have another mode that DTRT...

Why don't we simply promote message-mode, and deprecate mail-mode.

Would (defalias 'mail-mode 'message-mode) work?
