"There are plenty of reasons to stay away from HTML mail, but this is not one of them."
I should probably have said something like "among other things..." -- as you say, there are plenty of reasons not to want HTML rendered by default. Yet another reason is spam filtering -- if a message has no text/plain component, or a totally incoherent block of random words, it's almost certain to be spam.
