This indicates a basic problem with the whole multipart/alternative

mailers on what property to use for selecting which body
part to show to users.

See RFC 1766. Again, the problem is that it is not implemented; I was not able to find a single implementation, let alone 2, when checking if this could go to Draft Standard.

Perhaps there should be an attribute to multipart/alternative
as in the following example:

Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary="==boundary-2";
