MIMEDefang's append_text_boilerplate function doesn't look at the
content-disposition.  You'll need to write your own version if you only
want it to append boilerplate to inline parts... sorry!

It is certainly not necessary to have a text/plain part in an e-mail.

What did you have in mind?  A third argument to append_*_boilerplate
saying only to look at inline parts?
