Agreed. Simple messages with a little bit of HTML markup (bold,
italic, etc.) is probably going to be sufficient. I don't see a need
for complex formatting with CSS and such, but if we ever need it,
things can be extended.

I'm waiting for Mike Hearn's feedback on the 0.4 draft, and then I'll
post that. I'm very specifically saying how things like XEMBED and
such will not be supported ;) Let's put an end to that stuff.
