3. If you don't want to register several dozen fields one-by-one then
it'd have to be proposal to modify header field registration system
and create special new subtype of header registry for "Prefix-x"
(which I'd still like to do but can't quite get to it).
I thought the whole idea of X-headers was that they would NOT be
