OK, sorry. Obviously when oy wrote that the entire justification for
plaintext is bandwith restrictions, you of course meant that this is the
universal truth and not just your case. Well, as I said in my earlier
message, no, it is not the sole justification for plaintext and that
yes, there are other reasons as well for preferring plaintext. For me,
for instance, bandwith plays no role what so ever. 

So there you go. It is not the entire justification. It may be one
justification. 

OK? Is this difficult? I hope not.
