It contains the public portion of the sender's PGP key, which would
allow you to sign/encrypt an eventual reply (which should of course
also contain an Autocrypt header).

What level of support were you thinking of? The Autocrypt
recommendations include a whole bunch of PGP key generation and setup
messaging that I'm not convinced are necessary. Snarfing the key from
the header and adding it to the user's keyring should be easy enough. [1]


[1]  Or should this go to a separate Autocrypt keyring?
