Mimi is not around so I will have to make a call on this. I suspect
that she would want to preserve the stampness of the original item
when you reply, reply all etc. This would be consistent with all the
editing and updating workflows. I might of course have this wrong :-).
That being said, we don't have much time left for Alpha4 and I don't
know how difficult either of these options are. I would say that for
Alpha4 we should do whatever is easiest. If that means we don't
preserve the stampness of the item then that's ok and we can finish
that off in the next release.
Let me know what you think.
