Why not start with the HTML enabled email RFC? It already specifies how to
encode the message with MIME so that binary data can be attached. It also
specifies how to do relative URLs into the MIME package. MIME brings along a
lot of good things like encryption and compression.

The HTML email group originally had a hub/catalog document and decided it
wasn't really needed. Plus it was hard to generate in some cases.
