i can understand that the headers may be very usefull sometimes...
what if we meet half way? i just thought of the following solution:
put the message body in a textarea... and put a select box on
top if it that includes the headers... something like this:

<OPTION>View Message headers
<OPTION>From: me@there.com
<OPTION>Subject: blah
<OPTION>X-Mailer: Mutt1.1

so if you click on the select box, you get the list of headers.
and you don't even need to use Javascript :)
