I think the change in behavior should occur at the send method rather then the send_by_smtp.

I can see what you are getting at here, but it doesnt take into account the full interface of MIME::Lite. We need to handle two distinct cases. The first is that someone uses MIME::Lite->send() to configure the class defaults. The second is that someone calls $mime_obj->send_by_smtp() to override the class defaults or simply because they are doing a quick and dirty, or more likely because they are a beginner and havent groked send() properly.

Thus whatever processing happens in send() will also have to happen in send_by_smtp (and most likely send_by_sendmail and send_by_sub too). This isn't to say that send() wont be changed, just to say that it doesnt remove the requirement to alter send_by_smtp() as well.
