I agree with Bill McQuillan's remarks. If the server knows at the time

include the new clause in its usual Received: header. Otherwise it'll
have to add a new header. Would it be OK to edit the previously-added

I think RFC5321 says clearly that you're not supposed to do that ever.  Adding 
another one is more appropriate.

The examples all have syntax errors. Received: sub-fields have a
