I'm fine with that too.

They're in the same (notmuch) thread. Easily testable with

notmuch search id:"" or id:""

and therefore shown together. The commit 
02cafc84b4540cd0fb878121dcb3551b4ecd9fd1 made this happen always
(but without this this could have happened if there were no
other patches in new threads coming along in between.

I think the more space does not fix anything but it might help regognizing
message boundaries a bit (and thus would be a nice feature).
