If you insist (for sake of simplicity) on using an HTTP header, why not 
use Referrer which already exists? I know the semantics of this header 
are different from the proposal, but so is the usage context :-)

The effect of a secretary acting on my behalf is very close to me being 
the referrer on who's behalf the secretary is acting. Then we are back 
to how you want to proceed while also accommodating my more data 
oriented approach which is 100% driven by relationship semantics and 
Linked Data resources.
