thanks, done in v3, which you should see shortly.

i went through several variations on this, and settled finally on
header-mask.  I considered "masked-headers" and "replaced-headers" but
ultimately discarded them because they were unclear as to whether the
thing they were showing was the thing that was masked/replaced, or the
thing that was doing the masking/replacing.

I think that "header-mask" is unambiguous in indicating that its
contents are the things that are doing the masking-replacing, so i'd
prefer to stick with it. (though i'm willing to entertain other
proposals that have the same lack of ambiguity)
