Many archives and sites display lines off the right margin instead of allowing

Nope. Wrong. David has been doing this for over 2 years:

So it is a user issue. The user must hard wrap because Cygwin site does not.

In other words, why do you think your argument is correct?  Format=flowed is
not a new thing<https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2646.txt> and it would be nice
if the archives site could display it correctly.  I can cooperate on this
with the maintainer(s) if they're interested.  Essentially, one line of CSS
should fix it, judging by my quick test.
