No.  It is defined in RFC 822 which predates the current USENET format
(NB NNTP doesn't specify any headers, their specified in a different RFC!)
This particular distinction has always been a problem for threading email.
In fact the RFC 822 definition doesn't require that the references be
on a single direct ancestral path, only that they be referenced.
