Can we use the same trick as MLTeX did ? 

Quoted from tex.ch :

ML\TeX{} will add new primitives changing the behaviour of \TeX.  The
|banner| string has to be changed.  We do not change the |banner|
string, but will output an additional line to make clear that this is
a modified \TeX{} version.


@x [29.534] l.10293 - MLTeX: add MLTeX banner after loading fmt file
@<Print the banner line, including the date and time@>;
@<Print the banner line, including the date and time@>;
if mltex_enabled_p then
  begin wlog_cr; wlog('MLTeX v2.2 enabled');
