We could include an indicator of how to interpret text - basically,
Florian Schmaus's recent suggestion tailored to this.

Then you end up with:

1) Sender is plaintext -> Receiver does not style.
2) Sender is styled, Receiver cannot style -> Receiver does not style.
3) Sender is styled, Receiver can style -> Receiver styles.

(Note in case (1), whether the Receiver can style or not is irrelevant).
