My proposal does not "hobble our use of ASCII art".

I don't know why you are misreading my quite narrow
proposal as being so much broader than it actually is.

My proposal simply says that at least one RFC format will 
have text/plain (*.txt) contents (e.g., not HTML and not PDF), 
have consistent pagination, consistent printed page numbers, 
and consistent overall printed result for both A4 and 
US-Letter printers.
