My mailboxes get pretty big, some gigabytes usually, so saving the
buffer takes some seconds. I only want to save it if it got modified, for
example because I read some messages for the first time and thus changed
their unseen flag.

Some features are more or less used than others. But saying that some
use case is completely nonexistent is pretty strong: can you
substantiate this claim?  Unless you are arguing that a feature being
absent means that no one wants it: I would obviously disagree with that

There's at least one person (probably more) who is unhappy with that
behavior of rmail, and that's me.
