6. The injecting agent MUST NOT alter the body of the article in
any way (including any change of Content-Transfer-Encoding). It
MAY add other header fields not already provided by the poster,
but injecting agents are encouraged to use the Injection-Info
header for such information and to minimize the addition of
other headers. It SHOULD NOT alter, delete, or reorder any
existing header field except the Path header.
but I think you're right that message ID is special and needs a stronger
constraint than SHOULD.
