You have added the word "standard"; the standard itself just says
"headers", not "standard headers" in 16.2. Neither 16.2, nor the section
that says the standard library is supplied via headers (, nor
anyplace else I can find, says that only the standard library may be
#included via header rather than source file. As far as I can see, it is
perfectly valid for a library other than the standard library to be
supplied via header.

Am I missing some wording you have discovered?
