Indeed, as long as I am satisfied that all the messages in the view are
OK to delete / tag / whatever ... I usually look at such at view to make
sure that eg. the SPAM filter is doing the right thing.

My opinion : the best option would be to have some flag / toggle
variable / whatever that would cause a search results screen to display
only matching messages and not the whole thread.
