You mentioned why you wanted to rewrite Path:. (hop-count
propagation rules, Preventing path pre-loading is also a reason
to do it which you didn't mention.)
You mentioned why incoming Date headers are wildly inaccurate,
but not why this causes you a problem. Can you explain?
What do you do if someone is accessing the server remotely
from a different timezone, for example?
Do you also rewrite message-ID?
