Nothing's wrong with it unless you want to sign and/or encrypt mails
with attachments. I'd like to sometimes, but then mailcrypt doesn't
support it. And we're beyond the times of uuencode. Right now, the best
thing is to have a mailer that can handle both, ascii armor and
RFC2015. For the future, it'd be great to have just one sufficiently
general standard that all/most mailers can handle.
