I think this is a legitimate request for usability. I also sometimes
find myself in corporate emailing to put some thoughts or notes onto 
emails that came from others, and I want this note to be available 
in all my clients.  Else I find myself putting such notes elsewhere, 
without a proper hard link to that email message.

I understand the workflow.  I would recommend you use the "Create a
Task" or "Create a Memo" options - this is pretty much what they are
for.  That copies the e-mail to a task or memo to which you can perform
a variety of operations.  Memos are great, and overlooked.

If you need your email to be secure, you can sign it. The topic of 
such request, in my understanding, is not counterfeiting,

Yea, but you don't work this users.  Users will get *very* confused by
this, I guarantee it.  They will edit an e-mail, read it later, and
think that was the contents - unless the edit is *very* clearly distinct
from the message.  I guarantee it.
