Email applications should allow HTML emails with JavaScript in them. It's 2014 for pete's sake! While there is a long list of historical reasons why browsers have locked-down DOM, why in 2014 do email applications totally forbid JavaScript?

This would be a disastrous change. There are enough security issues with email attachments as it is. Adding JavaScript capability would only add to the attack surface of an already desperately insecure technology.
