One example is a change of... subject without a change of particpants,
for instance because an incident discussion topic is emerging and one
wants to split the conversion between the original and new topic.

There is even a netiquette/recommended way of announcing such a change,
by changing the subject to "Text of new subject (was: text of old
subject)". Well-mannered mailers will even, when replying to such
subject lines, automatically remove the parentheses and enclosed text.
