    What are the main reasons for switching from Babyl to mbox format in
    Rmail?  Are there technical or conceptual problems with the Babyl
    format, or is it just a case of wanting compatibility with a more
    widely used format?

mbox format is smaller, and provides more compatibility.  We
originally used Babyl format to provide certain features, but later on
people figured out how to implement the same features with mbox format,
eliminating the reason to use Babyl.
