I'll be honest:  I was somewhat annoyed when you did this on the cloud list because trac is terrible at threading, but once I came up with a filter for them that problem largely went away.  I think it's better to risk having too much info on the list than too little -- if it becomes a common source of complaints then it's easy to dial back.
