I think you made a good point that the proposal should state not only
if intermediaries are allowed to remove trailers but also if they are
allowed to change them.
However, I think this last sentence should either be:
1. Intermediaries MUST forward the trailers unchanged with the
forwarded message.
2. Intermediaries SHOULD forward the trailers unchanged with the
forwarded message.

I would prefer 1, as if an intermediary really need to change the
content of a trailer, it may just add a new trailer with the updated
content, leaving the older trailer unchanged for any other part of
the message referring to it.

Hervé.
