It sorts into the thread you replied to in Mail.app, so it apparently
uses two items: the in reply to header, and the title (to help with
broken mail clients I guess).
On the other hand, I can miss threads that change the subject, because
they end up in a thread I decided I was no longer interested in, and
mark as read without further checking. If such a thread is a genuine
help request that I know the answer to, then someone seeking help may
miss out on a valid answer.
