nnml is better for editing articles (`e' doesn't work in nnimap).  I
like that feature a lot and miss it now that I'm using only IMAP.

If you set up an IMAP server with a reasonable backend storage format
(Maildir!), you should be able to rsync back and forth while still
using IMAP.  You could even access the same mail store directly over
NFS - Maildir is very good for that.  My feeling is, though, that you
should stick with IMAP everywhere, for better or worse, and you'll be
happier in the long term because your interface to mail will be
consistent.
