Hrmm, that's interesting. Let me dig up RFC 2015. I don't see how it could apply to *all* the headers, since headers change during transit. Also, you bring up another point: If I want to forward a message sent to me signed by someone, with the sign intact, I can do that with traditional PGP signing. I don't see how one could do that with PGP/MIME.
