You want to turn the original post into an attachment and use
multipart/mixed at that point.

I think putting the code in INN is the wrong place to put it; instead, I'd
point INN's moderation submission address (using the moderators file) at a
local address that delivers to a script.  That script can then slurp in
the message, do whatever encapsulation and munging is necessary, and
forward it to the actual moderators.

That solution scales better (it works, for example, even after the
newsgroup has been distributed to multiple servers that aren't under your
direct control and therefore can't have your code added), and it's simple
to implement.
