Problem

In Citrus (2.7.1) the http-client send() action doesn't support variable substitution for header names.

In a scenario where each request in different test cases requires a header with a static name, this name could be made available to all tests via a global Citrus variable.

http(action ->
    action.client(this.backend)
        .send()
        .get("...")
        .header(${HEADER_NAME}, "${HEADER_VALUE}"));

Unfortunately, variable substitution only works for header values, but not for the header name, so in the above example only the variable ${HEADER_VALUE} will be correctly substituted.
