Headers serve a technical purpose. So for example adding Received: headers
is a MUST according to RFC 2822, 3.8.2:

3.8.2 Received Lines in Gatewaying

When forwarding a message into or out of the Internet environment, a
gateway MUST prepend a Received: line, but it MUST NOT alter in any
way a Received: line that is already in the header.

Similar for the other headers; basically all of them cannot be removed
without loosing functionality or putting the reliability of the mail
system at stake. Let me just say mail loops ...
