Aside from the ugliness of the syntax of how to turn it off, the
functionality of <verbatim> is absolutely necessary. In fact, I've
implemented some mail generating code that I don't see how to implement
easily without using <verbatim>.

Like I said before, the code to implement <verbatim> was all of ~25 lines in
the metamail richtext program.

No, <verbatim> should NOT be removed.
