Actually, the docs only specifically mention exists:Header and Header:addr as
special header tests, with no word suggesting Header might be anything more
complicated than a plain mail header.

The :addr one might be not that obvious, but exists:name_of_header specifically
mentions a header name only.

IMHO, this does not need to be supported, since exists: merely is "a very
simple version of the above header tests" (quoting the docs) and can easily be
done with an RE rule. Moreover, I believe the docs do not specifically need to
forbid this, since it doesn't suggest this to be supported.

Not a bug IMHO, closing RESOLVED INVALID accordingly. Please feel free to
re-open the bug report, if you feel strongly about it.
