[Mimedefang] What gets changed outside of mimedefang-filter?

I'm running MIMEDefang 2.11, and I have some power users who would prefer that
their mail not be touched by MIMEDefang at all, for any reason. (They don't
want anything changing their mail.) Now while I can certainly set up the
filter to simply accept mail to and from these addresses, it won't leave the
mail *completely* unchanged. At the very least, the X-Scanned-By header will
still be added.
So I'd like to verify this: If the filter does nothing except call
action_accept(), is anything changed other than adding that one header? Any
whitespace collapsed, or formatting altered? Any other headers changed? Any
changes to the body?
And yes, I can see some circumstances where this is a good idea. People who
don't run insecure mail clients and don't open attachments they aren't
expecting don't need it, and if they're on, say, a virus research list or
perhaps discussing vulnerabilities on Bugtraq, they might actually have a
legit reason to send and receive dangerous files.
