ACK. Worked for me nice, header was there. Now, the ball is on WebUI
side.

I would just rename the header from "X-rejection-reason" to
"X-Rejection-Reason" (camel case used) in order to be consistent with
other headers.

Honza also suggested to add "IPA" prefix so that people know where this
headers comes from. So the final header name would be:
X-IPA-Rejection-Reason
