So all non-english speakers are forbidden to use Email? Inline is supposed to
be applied over the decoded message content, thus there may be 8 bit
characters in there.

Ugh. I prefer PGP/MIME.
My policy: on list mail, I always use PGP/MIME - it's not my problem that some
people chose a bad MUA to read their mail. On private mail, it depends: with
some people, I use inline as I know that they use OE. OTOH with people who
send me signed email, I always use PGP/MIME - when they use MSOE, they
*should* know better. I have made the experience that many ticketing systems
do break on MIME (generally, not just multipart/signed). So there's only
inline signed mail in that direction.
