I think you have the wrong idea of what include_rts does. Include_rts is designed to include native retweets in timelines where default inclusion would break. For example /statuses/user_timeline expects all tweets to be from a user A. But if that user A has retweeted user B then user Bs tweets can be included user As user_timeline with include_rts. Include_rts has no effect on /statuses/mentions because the original tweet is already included due to the fact it is a mention.
