No, I understood you perfectly.  Just because they're changing the 
subject doesn't mean it should get it's own new top-level thread, seeing 
as it was spawned from an earlier thread.  If people follow your advice 
they'll be breaking the way Thunderbird and many other clients do 
threading.  Nearly every time the subject is changed and something is 
quoted from a previous email, but the subject is changed to indicate the 
direction the thread is heading, but that does not mean it's a new 
thread.  If people followed you're advice we'd end up with top-level 
emails with quotes in them, which isn't intuitive at all.
