hg help import says this:
        From and Subject headers of email message are used as default
        committer and commit message. All text/plain body parts before
        first diff are added to commit message.

Experimentally, I don't see what you're complaining about. Importing
this patch:
        From: author
        Subject: line 1
        line 2

Yeah, tests would be handy.
