Well, implicitly, text is only supposed to be reflowed when
format=flowed is in use, and only then when each physical line of the
file ends with a space character.

If there were _no_ internet standard on reflowing that would be one
thing (new feature whereas the standards are behind the times), but the
standard for reflowing is actually well-established (RFC 2646, dated
1999) and there's no real reason for not following it.
