I'd have to read the code too for details, and I'm also not sure how
Rmail works.  I assume larsi should explain the Gnus design.  However,
it's clear it maintains mbox-type files effectively as received --
articles aren't re-written except, perhaps for additional headers.  I
don't think it makes sense to do anything else if you're going to
provide MIME processing, as I presume Rmail users would hope.  I'd
guess it's useful to figure out how VM works too; I think that works
with mbox files too.
