What you describe seems like you are advocating top-posting for
accessibility (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Top_posting)

I believe this is at odds with list policy to use bottom-posting (the
rest of my reply is blow the quoted material)

Bottom posting seems to facilitate a more judicious selection of
quoted material.  It is common to see top-posted threads where the
contributors neglect to trim their quotes.  This tends to redundantly
nest quoted material and drives down the signal to noise ratio with
each quoted reply.
