What problem you're trying to address? A mechanism to report any arbitrary
delay, or are you specifically thinking about moderator delays on a list?

My formulation of the generic issue is to have the Received audit trail mark processing events other than simple smtp exchanges.

For example, sometimes a header field is added for the mailing list module's processing. The proposal is for yet-another Received field if the MLM decides to hold for moderation (or whatever.)

My thought is about the generic "internal processing" construct, if it causes meaningful delay, and is not meant to be restricted to the particular case of moderation.
