Actually, this may be a dumb question, what are some of those reasons (or 
can you point me to some documentation if this is a re-run for everyone 
else)?  I'm not disagreeing with you, but I do have this discussion around 
here every so often with people who prefer inline signatures, and I'm not 
usually making very forceful arguments - especially not to people who don't 
really understand MIME and aren't always quite sure what their mail client 
is showing them.  "But it's less confusing this way!" (the inline way)
