As far as universal readability goes, you are correct. However, HTML
mail can (whether it includes a text/plain part or not) have security
implications that RFC-compliant (plain text only) mail does not. Some
of the security problems include embedded active content and web bugs.
Some clients let the user disable those "features," but in that case
the mail becomes about as functional as text/plain and you might as
well not waste the overhead for HTML.
