Comment:

 Maybe innfeed should not try to propagate such messages (and innd should
 not have accepted them -- even after TAKETHIS) because the message-ID is
 not valid.

 USEPRO states:

    The msg-id MUST NOT be more than 250 octets in length.

       NOTE: The length restriction ensures that systems that accept
 message identifiers as a parameter when referencing an article (e.g.
 [RFC3977]) can rely on a bounded length.



 RFC 3977 states:

    o  A message-id MUST begin with "<", end with ">", and MUST NOT contain
 the latter except at the end.

    o  A message-id MUST be between 3 and 250 octets in length.

    o  A message-id MUST NOT contain octets other than printable US-ASCII
 characters.
