In my opinion an approach via headers is much cleaner and conforming to 
existing standards while an extra attachment leads to acceptance problems.

In addition using multiple headers allows us to at least standardize and 
document those flags transparentlywhich are understood (I assume that we 
currently don't know every aspect OL wants to store in the mail).

An extra attachment is imho unnecessarily too much opaq.
