Top-quoting is the way email has worked from the year dot, and I really
can't see people changing their ways now. Usually, people on screenreaders
just install a mail filter to remove top filtering (or the client can be
told not to read indented text), but for the other 99.99% of users, it's a
lot easier to follow discussions, and it'll probably stay that way.
