So in case of top posting with the signature and the '-- ' separator
inserted after the new text instead of at the end, the signature and all
the following text would get removed, which is definitely unwanted.
Therefore imho it makes sense to use '---' or something else instead of
the well known '-- '. 

Maybe a start and an end separator would be useful to allow to cut the
signature out on reply...
