Since the problem is a relative handful of large attachments, could a
solution just be to provide a repository for
mailing list members to store such files, yielding a URL they could
use in an email ? Then, the usual list feedback
would keep the attachment sizes manageable.
Obviously, there would be some issues about security (e.g., avoiding
hidden porn storage),
but they don't seem insurmountable in context For example, the link
could be non-functional until the URL was
used in an email to the appropriate mailing list. Then, the usual
moderation tools should suffice to take care
of inappropriate content.

Along those lines how about setting up an IETF IMAP server with
mailboxes for each mailing list hosted by the IETF?
There has been a discussion under way for some time to get that to
happen. I believe RFP's are being thought about (or written).
Right, so isn't this,
satisfiable via IMAP? At the very least I think that draft needs another
* Users must be easily able to reply to archived messages using their email
client of choice. In particular, replies need to preserve threading
information in the form of References and In-Reply-To email headers.
