I see your point, but I'm trying to weigh the relative uglitude of
adding more clauses in Received: lines against adding yet more trace
headers.  IANA already has a registry for
Additional-registered-clauses at
http://www.iana.org/assignments/mail-parameters, but as far as I can
tell, there's no registry of trace headers.

On the third hand, there probably should be a registry of trace headers,
since there's nothing I can find now beyond the extremely incomplete list
in section 3.6.7 of RFC 5322.

R's,
John
