This is not an example of multiple subject lines, it is an example of

reason it doesn't is probably that the handling of folding is
considered to be such a fundamental characteristic of email headers
that nobody thought to point it out.)

Right.  Actually I think there are clearer folding rules in the
forthcoming 822bis document anyway, and I was thinking about those when
I forgot about this.

I'll try and add a sentence saying this if/when I can.
