Yes, you need to preserve the Infoset properties of the stuff that's there ( modulo the exceptions listed ). 
If you insert new stuff you can use whatever prefixes you like.

	I assume that 'preserve' and 'reuse' are distinct, i.e., that an
	intermediary is not required to 'reuse' prefixes for inserted headers.
