It'd be good to see some progress along these lines, so thanks
for writing that.

If doing so, and in addition to greasing, could it be useful
to define some fixed strings that mean "NOT SAYING" for each
of the new headers?

I'm not sure it'd be a major win, but if those were defined,
then that might help a bit for whatever various UAs do when
they're supposedly in a more privacy-friendly mode - it'd
allow/encourage such UAs to look that little bit more alike.
