That sounds plausible to me, thank you. It would seem to take us
officially to the level FOP and PassiveTeX were at with _ad hoc_
extensions. 

It does not, of course, deal with the general case where running heads
change depending on context but not necessarily at page boundaries. I
am sure you all know that, and I assume something to cope with this
will appear in the next draft??

Is the race now on to be the first to implement this draft of the
spec? does anyone volunteer to prepare a simple test document?
