IPhoto sends emails in Rich format even if the default format is Plain Text

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

Detailed Summary (wouldn't fit in the Topic Subject):
iPhoto will always send emails in Rich Text format even if Mail application is set to send all emails in Plain Text format. In other words, emails initiated from iPhoto ignore the selected Message Format setting in the Mail application.
Description:
It is a better practice to email photos in the Plain Text format instead of Rich Text format so recipients using different email clients can easily download attached pictures as regular attached files.
The workaround is to change the email format to Plain Text before sending it. This wouldn't be such a problem if you could make this a permanent setting however this is not possible. The Mail application has a specific setting for this but iPhoto simply ignores it. This is the issue I am raising here.
How to reproduce the problem:
1. Open the Mail application (Assuming you already have an email account configured)
2. Go to Preferences, Composing tab
3. Change Message Format to "Plain Text"
4. Optional step to verify that the Plain Text is now the default format: Start a new email. Click on menu Format and you'll see "Make Rich Text" available, which means the current email is in fact in Text Format. Close this email.
5. Open iPhoto
6. Select one or more photos and click on the "Email" icon on the lower right hand side
7. A details popup will open, click on "Compose Message"
8. The Mail application will open as well as a New Email window with the Subject field filled out and the selected photos in the email body
9. Click on the menu Format
Expected: Th last option should be "Make Rich Text" indicating that the current email is in Plain Text format as determined by the Mail settings (steps 1-5 above)
Actual: Last option is "Make Plain Text" which means the current email is fact in the Rich Text format which does not match the Mail application settings.
Can we at least get an acknowledgement from Apple that this is a known issue? Also, is there a fix for this? It is not an acceptable solution to tell users to manually select Plain Text for every email. I am tired of asking people to resend emails that way. That is a workaround, not a solution.
Test details:
- Mail Version 4.4 (1082)
- iPhoto Version 8.1.2 (424)
- OSX Version 10.6.5
