If they are administrators, they should know (or atleast know how to
find out) what header to use.

I like the idea of making it a $CONFIG item, since that would allow
admins to disable this feature by simply leaving the $CONFIG empty.
(I simply assume that an empty variabel would mean that it would
never match anything. If thats not the case, it should be!)
