All of the RFCs on mail format cover what is meant to be in there.
Unfortunately I can't access the IETF site at the moment, so I can't
give you RFC numbers

Gmail makes hiding your IP too easy.
All the other free webmail providers don't hide the original sender IP
so you can deal directly with the source of the problem, be that as a
source of spam, verbal abuse etc.,
You don't see yahoo's mail servers ALL being blacklisted, but you do
see it happening to Gmail regularly.
Google also does really dumb things with mail from things like
Analytics which breaks SPF / Sender ID (see longer explanation here: http://www.mneylon.com/blog/archives/2007/05/25/google-doesnt-respect-email/)
