For better acceptance with users mixminion should allow arbitrary headers in
outgoing messages, e.g. "Newsgroups" or "X-Hashcash" for posting to Newsgroups.
Exit remailer operators could then allow an arbitrary subset of those headers
and discard the others.

Additional thought: for easier posting it might be useful if the client did
not need to specify the mail2news gateway, but the exit remailer would use a
gateway pre-selected by the operator / post directly to a news servers (cf.
mixmasters "Anon-Post-To").

Good idea. There probably should also be some way to advertise which headers are allowed (in the server descriptor)
so that users can tell which exits to use.

Re the additional thought: there _is_ a specified NEWS delivery type, I believe, but nobody's implemented it yet.
