I noticed that the suggestion that clients implementing the mailserver URL put
a header into generated messages indicating the source of the mailserver
URL which generated the message didn't make it into the new draft.  This seems
like an extremely useful feature, not just for identifying the culprits in
cases where URLs are used to deliver, but also for mailserver administrators
who may be interested in how people are finding out about them.

Was there a reason that no such suggestion was made?
