Because this is not, primarily, a Google Group. Depending on your
perspective it's either a Usenet group (comp.lang.python) or a mailing
list (python-list). Services such as Google Groups, gmane or various
web-based portals are interacting with one or other of those (last time
I looked: GG was using nntp and gmane the mailing list).
Both of those services -- Usenet & Mailing list -- are traditionally
plain text. One could certainly make a case for the uniquity and
helpfulness of standard HTML markup, but I'm afraid that's unlikely to
cut any ice in the face of a long-established and usually useful convention.
Obviously you could use some established text markup such as ReST or
markdown which is quite readable in plain text but which *could* be
rendered to HTML by a suitable reader.
