Yes, somehow we have to hook or defadvice before mml/semi translates
the message buffer to real MIME.  I'm not sure about the defadive: We
would change functioallity of the translating function globally.

Funny thing: It's basically the same operation, only difference is in
the original content's source:

    | Org buffer |--+
    +------------+  |    +------------+   +----------------+
                    +--->| MIME setup |-->| Message buffer |
+----------------+  |    +------------+   +----------------+
| Message buffer |--+
