It's a feature[2]. Quick view shows file in the raw mode to avoid any delays
required to get some info of the file.

I'm not proposing having parsed mode by default in quick view. I'm
proposing having the ability of switching to it. Users who don't want
that won't see any difference.

- Directories show the string "Cannot view: not a regular file" but it
  might be a good feature to show the contents, or maybe a short
  description of it ("X images, Y documents")

Again, to calculate directory statistics, or get some info of file, we need
some time. Any delay can annoy users.

See above.
