There are subtleties.  E.g., for our submission service, we should be including 
the IP address of the client in Received.  Yet many of our customers don't want 
that information exposed.  And in fact we advertise that we don't expose that 

That helps protect our customer's privacy.  But we still have the audit 
information in our internal logs, should the need arise.  That could be for 
customer support reasons (why didn't my mail get delivered?), or for legal 
reasons (we always honour orders enforceable in a BC court).
