I agree that removing In-Reply-To and References is a good thing to do 
when breaking a thread.  But not all MUAs make that possible, much less 
easy.  Which means that you're left with starting a new message to the 
same recipients.

I've also seen how (sub)threads tend to drift from their original intent 
and then someone modifies the subject some time later.
