This proposal is an attempt to provide a standard header to indicate information about the message originator without implying that there is a deliverable mailbox or mandating that internal network information be revealed. The 'Originator-Info' header is intended to make the 'X-Sender' and 'X-X-Sender' headers obsolete.
