Off the top of my head, I'd prefer a new field with a new name ("Quarantined: <timestamp> <host> <reason>" or suchlike), as a new trace field. It would appear between other trace fields to explain the delay that took place at a certain point in the handling chain.

+1 for precision traceability
-1 for difficult implementation (multiple sources of reader/writer)
-2 for privacy invasion (it would have to be removed before public posting)

-3 overall.
