You can have different mime structure boundaries nested inside one
another, like tabs or folders

You can't be doing that kind of stuff for a spamcop submission; when
we/I do it, it is done 'experimentally' and for demonstration purposes to
'get the parse' to demonstrate that if the structure hadn't been like
that but like 'this', the item would have parsed. Those are material
changes and against the rules -- you can only use the result for a manual
notify; the spamcop parse has to be cancelled.
