I may be speaking out of turn, but I do not follow this at all.

If you are talking about the weekly email that lists package updates
for the past week, I always look at the text/plain part.  It is text
and I do not think that I have even noticed a 'mere addr of a
web-page' in the email.  I just display the part that has a name
like ann_nnnnn.txt, with 'nnnnn' being some number.

Maybe we are talking about two different things.  The one that I am
referring to is from newpkgs at lists.blastwave.org and always has a
subject containing 'weekly package summary' and a text/plain part that
I review.
