OK, but I think Ken was pointing out duff Content-IDs are seen in
practice, I've received `htmlpart', for example, so my point was that
Message-IDs can also be poorly produced and that shouldn't weaken the
cause for either, instead stamp out the poor producers.

Relately, https://www.ietf.org/rfc/rfc2392.txt allows the mid schema to
be `mid:messageid/contentid', but that's to help when indexing is only
on Message-ID rather than to cope with duplicate Content-ID.

Cheers, Ralph.
