A link to a message in the local storage of a regular mail reader should 
have mid: scheme, e.g. mid:87h7b5rm6f.fsf@localhost
https://tools.ietf.org/html/rfc2392
RFC 2392 - Content-ID and Message-ID Uniform Resource Locators

Unfortunately the only way to specify mail list is the text around the link.

Mail-archive promises Message-ID resolver 
https://mid.mail-archive.com/... but it does not work for emacs-orgmode. 
Gmane has the org mail list archive and allows access using Message-ID 
from an arbitrary mail list:

     w3m -m 'nntp://news.gmane.io/87h7b5rm6f.fsf@localhost'

However I consider https://list.orgmode.org/MID links as more friendly 
for users unaware of possible ways to obtain some message using its 
Message-ID.
