Not ignored. Threaded email works fine.

Your main argument is that some people don't cc lkml
because section entries don't specify it explicitly.

My main argument, which you elided, is that some people
will not cc lkml because they will see some sections
with L: entries with lkml and others without, and will
therefore _not_ cc lkml instead.

So I think the rule should be either every section has
an lkml entry or no section does.

Pick one.

Mixing styles just causes a different type of error.

If you are going to complain about "honesty in
argumentation", try it yourself.

Be an exemplar.

Describing a previous change as being made for
intuitions sake when it wasn't, isn't.
