Hi Hadriel,
is has also an other reason. When you send from the retargeting SIP Server an call Forwarding (Retargeting) notification in backward direction (181 Response) with an History Info, the target should be marked as private, because the retargeting server has no knowledge about the privacy instructions of the terminating user.

Best Regards

But that also begs the question of why we need a Privacy header of "history" to begin with. (I mean a real Privacy header in the message, not an embedded one in a particular HI URI)

The only case I could imagine for such things is that the caller doesn't want their domain known about.  I.e., I make an anonymous call from my SIP phone through my corporate SIP proxy, and my SIP phone sets "Privacy: history" so that Acme Packet's anonymization proxy removes "" from any H-Is, before sending it out our SIP trunk, etc.
