No, it's not bogus. Digest users may well want to see the entire
messages, but just receive them batched up as one large email message
a day rather than 100 smaller ones. Removing attachments is,
especially for a list like this one where they are used so
critically, may well be the wrong thing to do. Giving Digest users
the option to have attachments preserved or stripped would be seem to
me a good thing to do since different digest users may have different
objectives when electing the digest option.
