lib/RT/Action/SendEmail.pm states:

  # TODO We should always add References headers for all message-ids
  # of previous messages related to this ticket.

so I guess the reason is "haven't gotten around to it yet". :)

The solution would be to iterate through $self->TicketObj->Transactions
tacking any found Message-IDs onto the References header; possibly
limiting the size of said header along the way. (I'd go for first three
plus last three or some such.)
