That doesn't help with a (at the point theoretical) malware threat that works 
off of a KHTML flaw to compromise the user's session.  Typically local address 
books are used as a vector for spreading the exploit. (i.e. the fact that it 
comes from an address in your address book doesn't make it 'safe'.)

I think the current "click here to see the html" approach is easy enough and a 
reasonable default.
