I think your are really missing something. First, Email-headers are  
unordered
and every relay can, and probably will,  rearrange them, add or delete
headers.
You therefore most definitely should not add any headers which are
position-dependent.
If you want to track mails somehow, add headers with timestamps.
This way you can watch the progression of an email without being
dependend on "sorted" headerlines.
