Have you ever tried to repurpose established practice on the Internet?

That's why I am, instead, directly use established practice, and merely 
add a new venue for it.

You see this even with text messages on some platforms now, where it says:

Foo reacted “👍” to “I love dogs” and quotes the full text message that you sent 
them.  I assume there's enough smarts in some clients to find the most recent 
matching message and assign the reaction to it.

This is a slightly more programatic way of doing that.  I would suggest that 
the body be something like that text message - a description of the reaction 
and the text being reacted to (as well as having the correct In-Reply-To to 
thread in the right place of course).  A client that doesn't know about the 
header gets a "Me Too!!!!" email in the thread, a client that does know can 
collapse it into something clever.

For that matter a server that knew about this could suppress the email entirely 
and turn it into a keyword update and some metadata on the replied-to message.
