Re: [ietf-822] "--" first in lines to indicate start of signature

RFC 3676 standardizes signature separators and quote prefixes. In a text/plain; format=flowed MIME part, signatures and quote prefixes are standardized and hence may be handled in any way desired by the user agents (e.g., removing signatures from quoted text in replies, reformatting quoted paragraphs in displays).

If you want to standardize these elements in a non-format=flowed part, you could do so by just pointing to RFC 3676.
