Now, if you are are suggesting that maybe SMTP "should" perform MIME
processing to maybe WARN/HELP the user, then we are in tune with what
I hoping to get going here.

Dear Mr. Santos,

Just for clarification -- are you suggesting that SMTP servers perform
MIME processing to identify potentially evil content, so that users do
not have to deal with it?

Furthermore, are you suggesting that this is necessary because the MUA
cannot be relied upon to protect the user adequately, once the message
has been received?

Thank you.
