Ideally there would be a set of terms and a corresponding set of
illustrations of the structures, including the 'illustration' of OE's
forward function as well as its forward as attachment structure.
There are a lot of agents and a lot of terms used by those agents and
quite a bit of confusion.
Clearly the majority of SC users are not going to become comprehensive
on MIME structure, so whatever informational faq -- don't forget to
limit it to 24 lines, I like that idea ;-) -- needs to just dole out
Sometimes you have to sacrifice 'accuracy' or correctness in favor of
some form of terse, succinct, inaccuracy.
