I really don't want to start affecting HTML attachments that aren't
identified by virus scanners. Otherwise it rapidly becomes impossible for
people developing web pages to communicate by email at all. No scripts or
forms in any web pages transmitted by email at all? Gets kinda hard for 2
people to work on a shopping cart site with restrictions like that in place.

I feel I need to balance the danger with the risk of removing email as a
communication medium. I want to make it safer for people to communicate by
email, not impossible.
