I'm not sure about that particular case; i've heard it a few
times, but only a few.

What is incredibly valuable (and common!) is reading a patch in
email and doing code review by replying to the email. Do we
really want to force people to send two attachments with the same
data in different formats? I stand by my assertion that the
second (tree-sensitive) format will simply not be there most of
the time.
