To support non-replace multipart schemes, where resources are  
considered related, you'd want to provide some implementation of the  
cid: URL scheme that knows how to find attachments. Currently we  
consider this the domain of mail clients to handle. Is there  
significant non-replace multipart content on the web that would be  
useful to support?
