If you're going to be serious about anonymizing something, you
have no choice but to strip everything but certain specific headers
that you know to be clean.

You would certainly have to remove "Message-Id:" and regenerate
locally on the anonymizing mail server. I'd have to talk to certain
people I know in the anonymous remailer community to see which others
would also have to be removed, and find out the reasoning behind that.
