This is totally ridiculous.

The document you reference is a long attempt at rationalizing why we 
shouldn't bother to try to make mail systems Do The Right Thing.

The tool should fit the job and not the other way around.

The next thing you're goint to tell me is that we should train computer 
users to not use spaces in file names, because "it makes things hard 
for the IT guys."

It's 2004.  Get over it.
