If I simply would want to forward a mail as-is, you wouldn't (more 
precisely shouldn't) forward it inline, but as an attachment.
If I forward messages inline, than I want to refer to and comment some 
parts of it, and therefor it needs to be quoted. I really got confused 
when seeing no quote. Especially the heading with author and time of 
the text that follows shouts for quoting imho.

Not sure why you would want them to look different? The title has a 
"Re:" or a "Fw:" and that's it, you know what it is before you even 
look at the body. I think they should look similar in order to not 
confuse users. See section above.
