Yes. In dictionaries and other reference works, it's common for a running
head to reflect the first *whole* entry on a page. "First" lets you do
that, while "start" lets you use whatever value is in effect at the
beginning of the page.

I'll add some language about what happens if the element used for the
assignment is fragmented across the page boundary.
