I was under the impression that message/partial reassembly is often
implemented by the rMUA rather than some transport-level entity between
the sender and recipient.

I would make an even stronger statement, to the effect that it is generally
inappropriate for a transport-level entity to perform such reassembly.
There are probably valid exceptions, but the norm should be that all
messages, including those with message/partial content, are delivered 
to the recipient's message store.
