Thanks for all answers and ideas!  I don't want to answer to all, so
here is a summary:

I already knew org capture commands - but as sole util, they don't alone
fit what I want.  It could only be a part.

I also knew that I can tick messages.  I already have hundreds of ticked
messages so that I started to mark messages as "unread" as a flag for
myself meaning "read it again - important".  Not a good workflow.

I then learned about the Gnus registry, which is a thing I not knew
about and which fills a gap which I wondered why it existed.  It allows
custom flags (solving the above problem) and storing arbitrary data
attached to a message.  It's very low-level, however, but it would allow
to implement what I want.

Finally, "Gnorb" seems to fit perfectly, though I was a bit skeptical
first cause it seemed a bit complicated.  It allows me to capture notes/
todos etc from the Gnus summary buffer.  I can let Gnus flag all
messages that have an org headline attached in the summary buffer,
directly jump to the headline from the messages buffer and back etc -
all I wanted.  Seems nice - how could something with such a nice name as
"Gnorb" disappoint you... ;-)
