The email client in Playbook OS 2.0 is a great step forward.
The client does omit the "References" and "In-Reply-To" header identifiers that are strongly recommended, although not mandatory, by RFC 2822. (See para 3.6.4 on pg 22 here: http://www.rfc-editor.org/rfc/rfc2822.txt )
Recipient email clients depend upon the "In-Reply_To" identifier to thread messages properly. Its absence is a huge gaping usability hole - and is easily fixed!

I spoke with RIM technical support about getting the in-reply-to field routed through the BES. The field is currently not routed with messages. They submitted a request to the Development group and a feature enhancement request was created, DT5686059. The Development group will be the one that decides if and when the feature is implemented.
If for any one Maintenance Release, Service Pack, or alternative build the Feature is implemented, then the public Release Notes for that release will make reference to it. If there is no reference to it in the public Release Notes, it'll simply mean the Feature has not (yet) been implemented.
