I'm usually able to infer the content type from the sender or mailing
list.  If it's on emacs-devel, it's most probably emacs lisp or C.

That said, I'm not annoyed by the org babel delimiters, but at the same
time, I don't see any benefit in them.  If Gnus would actually use the
explicitly stated language to fontify the snippet with the corresponding
emacs mode, that would be a big benefit.  That seems feasible, because
Org mode does so if `org-src-fontify-natively' is non-nil.

But as it is right now, it's just as fine as the usual:

--8<---------------cut here---------------start------------->8---
foo = bar + baz
--8<---------------cut here---------------end--------------->8---
