This would also have the utility of making following threads in
-private sufficiently difficult that only the most necessarily private
threads will happen there. [Try following a flamewar when you have to
decrypt every message...]
Of course, there is an argument that VAC messages will still have
headers unencrypted which could leak information... but it's not like
it'll be any worse than it is now, and people who care can always
shove them into the body.
