I know I would and can't see why other people wouldn't.

I expect it's safer to "git fetch + git diff" from a random machine out
there than it is to have your MUA process a random email from
a random person.

Clearly, it requires to be connected in order to fetch the branch
(rather than having the patch fetched when you sync your email), but you
can still review it offline after that.
