Sounds like you want a meta rule. You'll actually need three rules, a 
header rule, a subject rule and a meta rule that combines them. Of the 
three, only the meta rule should have a strong positive score.

The subject and header rules can also be scored if you want, or name the 
rule starting with a double underscore (__) and omit the score statement 
and that rule will become unscored and not visible in the hits list. (this 
is a common practice, create two unscored rules and a meta rule, and only 
the meta shows in the hits and has a score statement)

Here's a sample meta rule I made that uses body rules, but you can do 
header rules just as easily:

body __PGP_BEGIN_SIG            /-----BEGIN PGP SIGNATURE-----/
body __PGP_END_SIG              /---END PGP SIGNATURE---/

score LOCAL_PGP_SIG_ABUSE       0.5
describe LOCAL_PGP_SIG_ABUSE    Message has a PGP signature that never ends
