Why? Why put further confusion and ambiguity on receivers? Why further
perpetuate a continued recognition of a lower payoff in DKIM analysis?
Why make the life the support people or whoever trying to make heads or
tails if a header was indeed part of the original hashing and integrity
expected to be maintain? I can see it now - we will never know if a
SUBJECT or TO (which is not required by 2822) was part of the message or
not even if h= says there *might* be a header. IMV, domains will be
stupid to risk playing games that only adds confusion with an already
complicated concept - a strategy you should expect to see from DKIM
Eh? If a message genuinely had no Subject header, but 'subject' was
included in the "h=" tag, then that does not mean there "might be a
Subject header". It means there was NOT a Subject header when it was
signed, and if one gets added en route the verifier will report a DKIM
falure, and rightly so. That would be DKIM working exactly as intended.
