Which mail clients can't test arbitrary header lines?
You may be searching too hard for a 100% solution, given that the
IETF already has given the standardized one. And, you are still
bolloxing an existing header; what's the chance that elist software
will do this correctly, particularly when you think about
line-folding rules, quoted printable, and so on?
