Goal is having a "header" which make it possible
to check that actual a preseed file is being downloaded.

https://www.debian.org/releases/stable/example-preseed.txt shows clearly
that a preseed file can start with a comment.

What are the opinions about a two step approach like

Step 1:
Document all "stretch" preseed files begining with '#!preseedV1'

Step 2:
In "stretch+1", a.k.a. "buster", implement code that checks '#!preseedV1'
and informs user when not found.
