There is: if you aren't doing anything more than adding a header
field, as long as you choose a literal representation and you also
pass through all messages that relate to the header table (max size,
everything) verbatim, you can shim this in.  You won't learn much in
the process though unless you maintain your own table because you
won't be able to decode header fields without the header table.
