(I am, in general, annoyed with IETF (i.e. RFC822 style) headers
compared to XML fields, but I've come around to some extent after many
IMPP arguments. The key comment in this document which gives it much
more credibility is that, for crypto purposes, the crypto hashes are
computed 'as if' this were the message format. Very smart, finally.)

Just what is a "specofocation" though? ;-)
