  I see much more feasible to require a pseudo-header: less cumbersome,
  higher probability of getting implemented, and more in accordance with
  the philosophy of our BTS.

  And such header is now needed to make a versioned closes, so it
  doesn't sound too disruptive to require it for every mail to -done (at
  least the Source: one, Source-Version could be optional).
