I completely respect your choices - this one and the others.  But I
still would like to point out that this may also be an example of
something else.

Choices of this kind are always a tradeoff.  Great as Gnus is I don't
think it is perfect, or else I'd use it :-)  So, how bad are the
problems with Gnus, and how bad are the problems with the others?  The
missing feature you mention doesn't strike _me_ as a particularly
serious problem.  After all, you have to select the region first, so
it's about the same amount of work as deleting the unwanted material in
the reply.  

So if this were the _only_ problem with MUA X, it would not make me drop
it and use Gnus.  But YMMV!
