What would you suggest?  I don't see any practical alternative to ELF out there

terms of capabilities at this point would be Mach-O, and that's impractical for 
a variety of reasons.

What are the defects in Elf as you see them?

Eh, it's just the Mail app on Snow Leopard ... Most MUAs I've seen these days 
wrap the lines in a reasonable fashion, although some mailing list software 
biffs the formatting.
