Yes. I do something similar and we both use the same email client,
though I think your version might be newer than mine (:

My point was though, that one might not want a one list per
mailbox, or one list per label/tag filtering model and in such
cases the possibility of sorting the message list per
list/label/tag becomes interesting again.

Was just mentioning an area in which the subject annotation could
be used in a way that (in most clients) is not facilitated by
header contents. I'd prefer to do this with lables than with
subject annotations, but sometimes there aint enough labels to go
