One specific government agency! They are already intercepting your international emails... and no doubt this thread has been captured and analyzed because of international traffic.

But even your top of the line Russian mobster has difficulty in penetrating hard wired internet traffic... many other ways are much easier to break into a company's secrets.

No, not companies' secrets, Big John's secrets. No reasonable company would ever share any real secrets over this sort of VPN connections probably available to most of the employees.
As of the agencies there are many too many with the appetite but I am pretty sure they are looking for some better ways than relying on good luck to get plain text e-mails at the providers' nodes. Nobody can guaranty your vpn clients or servers are free from backdoors or unpublished exploits.
