a note about the above as it might be relevant to any decision made.
I watch over the newsgroup gateway and I can say that it would not
be affected. It uses the headers to do it’s magic, because I feel
that’s more reliable. The gateway existed back when the numbers
were still around and it could do so again, though it has been
rewritten since then.
I cannot speak for the other forums, of course.

I notice that some messages are still not being propagated properly
through the gateway. Is this still a function of the message
type? I think I remember something about HTML causing problems.

Correct. I explain the rules at:

For example, the first message of this thread was not propagated,
just the reply from Matz.

Here’s the relevant header from that message:

Content-Type: multipart/alternative; boundary=“----
