It is.

Btw. mailing lists using mailman, that did not remove
the digest option, should default to mime digest, if digest is selected.

This way a digest reader can reply to an individual email, by keeping
the subject and thread.

The Evolution mailing list followed my suggestion, before they removed
the digest option.
