That depends on the software that generated the message (e.g., Thunderbird seems to do uuid@domain, so avoids the privacy issue—at least it reveals less than the From header), but where it does you could just redact the hostname (or entire domain). That'd still preserve the ability to reference an individual message.

Message-Id: <localpart@...> and
Message-Id: <localpart@REDACTED>

are both pretty clear what you're doing.
