In most places it is considered good manners never to rely on any
information to succeed in being transmitted on subject line just for
this reason.

Subject: is the subject, and it's used for sorting and visually
recognizing topics in message lists. All actual text should be contained
(duplicated) in the message body. It's not much of an effort and makes
life much easier and avoids confusion.

No man is an island, but then no man is a potato salad, either.
