Such a facility would be useful, I would think, as a client which doesn't support this extension will ignore the <forwarded/> content.  The forwarding client can use discovery to determine if support is lacking and, if so, take appropriate action, such as indicate to the user that the forwarded content might not be presented by the client they are forwarding it to.

I assume this feature would be strictly for clients that show plain
forwards to the user (not as part of another protocol). I think that
makes some sense.
