I don't use stream_by_recipient() and never have. Here's my
understanding, though... If stream_by_recipient() returns false, there
was only one user, so stream_by_recipient() did nothing and the filter
runs as normal. If there are multiple recipients, then
stream_by_recipient() resends the original message to each recipient
individually, and your filter should terminate. You'll then see the new
messages in separate invocations of your filter.

Until a few weeks ago, yes. We were adding a header in some cases. So
what we did was: if everyone wants the header, add it, and we're done.
If some recipients want the header and some don't, resend the (original)
message to those who *don't*, remove them with delete_recipient(), and
add the header.

So in your case, you would resent to u...@domain.org,
delete_recipient(u...@domain.org), and then add the boilerplate.

We're now doing more extensive modifications, so I have re-implemented
resend_message() with my own code to modify the message as appropriate.

NOTE: If there is a disclaimer or other legal boilerplate in the above
message, it is NULL AND VOID.  You may ignore it.
