I utterly fail to see why what is displayed to the user is of the least relevance.

Charles is correct. The way protocol is layed down right now what is
displayed to the user is irrelevent to the core. It only becomes relevent
with the the policy part which is supposed to be the one trying to protect
against phishing. Also note that any MUA-based anti-spam systems that may
use the core would look at what it says and therefore if other header field
like Sender is listed its quite likely to be displayed.
