We've been fighting damaged email clients for probably as long as there has
been email.  Yes it's a futile fight despite that mail client authors have
known these things for a bazillion years.  Oleg's probably not as old or farty
as me, but I appreciate him at least reminding people of these conventions.
Being aware of them, perhaps we'll all take just a few extra seconds to make
sure our posts are more readable for everyone.
