The only reason that I can think of is that this makes it easier to
trace back the way of a posting. This might be interesting if somebody
tries to abuse usenet.
I have no idea whether there is a general consensus on which agents should
add a Path: header. The USEFOR draft says:
When an injecting, relaying or serving agent receives an article, it
MUST prepend its own path-identity followed by a delimiter to the
beginning of the Path-content.
Since Leafnode is a strange hybrid between a newsreader and a news server,
I prefer it to add a Path: header to all posting it relays.
