Yeah, you engaged in some serious bikeshedding there ;)

I like the idea of a top level part that requires the required headers,
and I agree that MIMEPart is better than MIMEMessage for that class.

Full validation is something that is currently a "future objective".
There's infrastructure to do it, but not all of the necessary knowledge
has been coded in yet.

I take your point about the relationship between related and alternative
not being set in stone.  I'll have to think through the consequences
of that, but I think it is just a matter of removing a couple error
checks and updating the documentation.

I'll also have to sit and think through your other ideas (the more
extensive bikeshedding :) before I can comment, and I'm heading out to
take my step-daughter to her freshman year of college, so I won't be
able to do thorough responses until tomorrow.
