I thought of a few (possibly) better reasons:

1. Personalization (goofy X-headers, .sigs, etc.)

2. Cryptographic signing (for those who want to be sure everyone knows
   the message is from them and not an imposter)

3. CC'ing friends who aren't on the Seth-trips list

4. Anonymous remailers (if there are any left)

Because of these things, I think it is better to get the formatted text
from the web page and send it to the list in the normal fashion, using
your mailer.
