Another thing I forgot:

RFC 2822 allows actual tree structures because each email has a header that
identifies its unique "parent" message. This puts the message into its
proper place in the thread tree (even when people have their clock

Using subject line magic you can only lump a whole bunch of emails into a
"subject" bucket (and then maybe sort chronologically, hoping that all
clocks involved were ok). You don't know which specific message another
message replied to.
