To be clear, the problem is not "with some email readers".

The problem is that it breaks the thread management features that are
built into every email message, making it impossible to display threads
correctly.

As can be seen here for example:
https://mail.python.org/pipermail/python-list/2017-January/thread.html

Note how most threads start in the leftmost column and replies are indented.
But this does not occur where you began the new subject: "Clickable hyperlinks".

Thanks.
