This would be useful to people looking through trace data to figure out why a message sat on a machine for some time, if the reason is something other than a hop that took a long time to complete for connectivity reasons.

Exim would not need to; the format of the Recieved header line is entirely under
the control of the exim config file and could be set up to include such information.
Also any such processing modes or states would be implemented by the config file
(it's a complete programming language and can hook to external facilities).
