I can't argue with you about the []/<> characters. As a user, I don't
really care about the subtle difference between them. I think Satyaki
(who implemented it) did.

Gnus also repeats the subjects, but collapses threads into a single line
followed by an ellipsis until you start reading the first message.

How does the Mutt presentation handle the Subject: New subject (was: old
subject) case?
