There's still a difference in using documented standards and placing
invisible remote images creating a request on a server anywhere and thereby
logging the user's mail receipt directly without his/her knowledge.

Exactly, I'd just like this to be the standard. When I write an article and
send it via mail, I have to use either HTML or zipped 8-bit ASCII because
otherwise the recipient would have to re-convert all the umlauts (cannot be
done automatically) in order to publish it.
