I don't see anything in the standards that defines this format, so I
suppose the answer should be "yes". On a more practical basis, I
don't know of any UNIX-based MUA which treats this correctly, and none
of the messages I looked at it had this attribute. In addition, I
can't see how "format=flowed" can distinguish between computer output
(which should be quoted unchanged, possibly with very long lines) and
text, which RFC 2822 recommends to be 78 characters or less. It also
makes it almost impossible to quote.
So yes, it's "disallowed" in the sense that it's discouraged, and that
a number of people, myself included, tend to delete such messages
unread. Follow the URL below for more details.
