From your tests (and my experience) it seems it will be ok as long as
you use gmail only as smtp server with a decent local MUA (like kmail
seems to be). But if you use gmail's interface it will remove relevant
headers and this will break threading on a changed subject (most
clients can do pseudo-threading by subject).

If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough.
