The term 'header' is not really meaningful here, but probably using SHIM is better than somthing new.

I was thinking of a more general application defined value that could be used as a reference for the app. We are currently reacting to the requrements of one application programmer. Maybe other apps have different requirements. Therefore I proposed a general <context/> in analogy to software callback APIs which usually have a single (general purpose) context value. The SHIM could be in the <context/>, though.
