Perhaps we should sponsor a new RFC: "Canonical Disclaimer Attachment".
Then mandate that a standard conforming email must use this attachment
type for its disclaimer.  Then, we can all safely drop the attachment
at our incoming mail server. :)  All mail that contains a final lorge
block of text at the end with disclaimer-sounding words in it,
can be returned to sender, with a note that they should use the
canonical disclaimer attachment for such things. :)
