Right now, when I dig out an old message out of my mail reader and I want to point other people to it, I need to google the contents to find it in the IETF mail archive in order to obtain the permalink.
This is tedious, and worse, it leads to people not referencing old discussions as much as would be healthy.

Why doesn't each message carry its own permalink at the time I get it?
