I think that spamassassin tags should not be removed. It provides to
mailing-list's subscribers informations they prove to be interested

Personally, I understand them as I prefer getting a spam tagged as scanned
by spamassassin even if spamassassin thought it was not a spam than
getting a spam without any tags.

Spamassassin score messages and tell which tests was relevant to
etablish the score. It's usually interesting.

Also, people may have a rule in their procmail rc as the following, to
save CPU time avoiding rerunning spamassassin at home when it was
already done.

* ! ^X-Spam-Status
| /usr/bin/spamassassin -P

In this regard, X-Spam-Status mail header is interesting.
