Default Header and footer text based on page content

I doubt that this will do any good, but I am hoping that enough of you vote
favorably to at least get MS to think about it.

I am suggesting a feature to allow header and/or footer text based on page
content. For example. Classified documents have text markers (S), (C), etc.
adjacent to each paragraph of classified text. Pages with classified text
must be annotated in the header and footer with the highest classification of
text on the page. You could have three paragraphs of confidential text and
one paragraph of secret text and the header and footer must read SECRET. A
few years ago fellow MVP Peter Jamieson helped me create a complex field code
construction that would achieve this goal on a limited basis. You can see it
The problem with the method posted at that site is if the paragraph expands
across a page then there is no text marker to set the header/footer text on
the following page. This to can be fixed using a hidden trailing text marker.

All is well in a simple document with one page numbering scheme. However,
if page numbering becomes more complex with the introduction of Appendices,
etc. the system breaks down.

I think that some enhancement in the application of Style is the only
answer. Logically "IF STYLE EXISTS THIS PAGE "This Text""That Text"

Well I hope to win your votes.
