[swift-evolution] Make link to main proposals always on top

My reaction was mostly "eh" because many mail clients thread responses, making it not too hard to jump back to the first message in a thread. That's not always where a proposal link lives, but usually it is. I don't usually look through a response message to find a proposal link in the first place.

I don't have objections to this. I know I'll forget to do it, but that's true of any new practice, so I can learn.
