I don't think the text/plain part can refer to the related parts, but, 
like you, am willing to be educated if there is a way; but while the 
text/html may be able to if things like cid: URIs can reach up a level 
in a given MUA, the text/plain would be left with the additional parts 
being attachments, methinks. This is less interesting than the technique 
Apple Mail uses, but more interesting than not even seeing the attached 

MUAs tend to be able to display what they produce themselves, but I have 
situations where they don't handle what other MUAs produce.

One nice thing about this email6 toolkit might be the ability to 
produce, more easily than before, a variety of MIME combinations to 
exercise and test a variety of MUAs. While perhaps most of them have 
been tested with some obviously standard MIME combinations, I suspect 
most of them will produce strange results with combinations that are out 
of the ordinary.
