Yes, I believe this was done to let “Prefer Plain Text” users also 
have the benefit of unwrapping.

Yes, it should perhaps be separate features (I'll look into that), but 
the unwrapping itself could probably also be smarter with respect to 
when to or not to do it. (And, in general, a system is still missing for 
enabling/disabling “transformations” applied when displaying or 
replying to messages.)
