I suggest EDIT mode when forwarding.

What I think could be more useful (and is also at Thunderbird feature) 
is to try to figure out whether or not the composed message actually 
contains any styling, and then either send it as plain text or as 
multipart/alternative. Is it done now? If not, is it possible?
