Slightly confused.  Under Preferences -> Mail Preferences -> Headers one
can add custom "Displayed Message Headers".  At least that works with
IMAPX [probably doesn't involve the plugin].  Doesn't that cause the
header to be downloaded as well?

We use the "Displayed Message Headers" feature extensively since our
workflow system puts a job/ticket/workorder number in an X- header of
the e-mail's it generates.
