I'm not sure if it was only in a draft, but I believe that the protocol
requirement is to always retain the thread root and to maintain at least
the most recent three, as well, but with a should level preference to retain all.

I couldn't find the rfc making clear the number of headers that should be included, but your comment seems more than reasonable to me. Using the standard quotation marks ">" would also be nice. These two wishes (more mids in References header and standard quotation mark), IMHO, should not be hard to implement but would notably improve Lynx.

Also, this good net keeping approval evaluation of Lynx as a news client may be useful:
