For example, how much new information is there in the date stamp in a

and the path it took (That's how you tell who's sending spam reports
from AOL and Yahoo, even though they redact all the addresses.)

Bear in mind that the date header field isn't modified in transit, so it can in 
principle be in the encrypted blob, and not in the postcard headers.

That would be a useful catalog, and we can think about models that
look at the net personal information, and diagnostic and anti-abuse
information provided by various combinations of features or the lack
thereof.  That would be interesting on its own, and would give us a
much better foundation from which to consider changes that could
produce an actual overall privacy improvement.

Agreed, but I don't see why you think this is an RG and not a WG.
