As terminology goes, 'plaintext' is cryptographic.
As concepts go, the distinction between plain text and rich text
existed prior to Unicode.
Making distinctions between plain text and rich text seems to
be a widespread practice in computing. Even on web sites that
seem to be either pre-Unicode (outdated) or on web sites that
seem to be a bit confused about just what Unicode is.

(A page that doesn't know diddley about Unicode)
(A page which calls Unicode an "East-Asian" character set)
