anyway, I really like it for myself ...

Thats quite a complicated set-up, not sure if I really can say something
about that.

Maybe you noticed, that in my original post I exported my mail written in the
*outorg-edit-buffer* to ASCII with this code block:

#+begin_src emacs-lisp :results output replace
  (org-export-to-buffer 'ascii "email-transcode-buffer")
   (with-current-buffer "email-transcode-buffer"
     (let ((mail-as-ascii
            (buffer-substring-no-properties (point-min) (point-max))))
       (set-buffer-modified-p nil)

and the result looked like this (I did not fiddle with the export options,
just used the settings I have):

I think this 134 in the headline comes from Gnus too, and is a draft number or
so. I'm not really sure whats happening there, it seems to be something
between Org and Gnus. I do use C-c ' in the *outorg-edit-buffer* too for
editing source-blocks, not sure if Org-mode automatically saves the original
buffer when returning from the temporal (source-code) edit buffer and updating
the original buffer - but that would then be the *outorg-edit-buffer*, not
the message-buffer.

I checked outorg.el - there is only one explicit use of 'save-buffer' not
related to this, so I don't seem to save the original-buffer when returning
from *outorg-edit-buffer* buffer (and I remember that I decided to better
leave that to the user).
