The system has to do one thing or the other. It has to collapse top-posts, or

group admins." One way or the other, someone is going to be unhappy.
Not collapsing anything is leaving it to group admins to pressure their members
to trim messages properly. Any form of collapsing is the system trying to
enforce some kind of discipline, which will suit some people but not others, as
the discussion here has already proved.

It should also be remembered that very occasionally a reply is not to the body
of the message but to the content of the sig, which is then properly quoted..
