Headers are used only for specific remoting applications. The HeaderHandler parameter is one of two ways to return headers from a stream in SOAP Remote Procedure Call (RPC) format. The other way is to use the TopObject property.

For successful deserialization, the current position in the stream must be at the beginning of the object graph.
