[SR-Users] Caller ID using From header

My issue is I have 1 carrier that doesn't support PAI or RPID for caller ID. Second carrier supports RPID but not PAI. Still waiting verification from the others.
This definitely seems like a big mess, I'd prefer to use PAI since it follows active RFC but the lack of support is surprising.
I'm assuming my two options I'm left with are using DID as usernames to avoid From header changes, or modifying From header.
If I'm forced to modify From header, where would be the place to do so with least negative affects?
All CDR is performed on Asterisk.

It's a common problem. The simplest solution - especially if you don't want to modify the From header - is to use one of the headers that superecedes From: P-Asserted-Identity, or Remote-Party-ID (deprecated draft, but very widely used).
Almost all commercial gateways and softswitches prefer them in this order of precedence: PAI, RPID, From.
