It's a different degree of relatedness, however. We need to somehow
differentiate between the multipart which comes from in-stream parts (a
hebrew sentence in the middle of an otherwise english paragraph) and the
multipart which comes from the attachment model. Whether it's called
multipart/related or something else is really irrelevent, as long as the
functionality is provided. If you can come up with a better name, great.
