This part appears to be out of date:
Since PGP/MIME can't reliably be sent to the three largest GnuPG
mailing lists, it’s hard to claim that PGP/MIME is ready for
widespread usage. For now, it’s best to use inline traffic unless you
can be certain that PGP/MIME messages will not be mangled in transit.
I don't know if this is true for PGP-Basics, but it is certainly not
true for enigmail or gnupg-users. Please update the FAQ!
--dkg, noting the irony of the parent message being sent with
S/MIME, an entirely different standard
