In the words of our former president, "We could do that, but it would
be wrong."  You SGML is impeccable, but without understanding why
people care about message length it's very hard to address the larger
issues you raise.  Could you elaborate a bit on the numbers and
attitudes involved, i.e. average message size now (is your example
typical?), anticipated traffic volume, size of archives, etc.?
