RFC 822 specifies the role of 'x-'. it says that no standard name
will ever contain x-. hence, if you add that to the name of a header, you
don't have to worry that the standards process will come along and take it
away from you.
But in fact I think it would be fine to standardize the new header.
As to NOT modifying the header, per some other comments, I concur
with the sentiment. The problem is that it leaves the problem intact. I'm
trying to fix a sorting problem that cannot reasonably be fixed anytime
soon in the sorting engine, i.e., the end-user platform.
