## \markup text defs between \score blocks

I'm working on a project with a friend.  So far I've set up a template
for him where all that is necessary is that he enter the lyrics in one
block, the musical information in another block and then all he has to
do is add another predefined \score block in another file and he's done.
Except for one thing; these are very short pieces (transcriptions of
medieval chants) and there is a need for adding footnotes on the same
page with the music.  I'm trying to avoid using lilypond-book.  I've
found a way to use \markup texts for this purpose.  What I have not
worked out is how to define something like this, which doesn't work:

footnotes = {
\markup {footnote 1}
\markup {footnote 2{
}

If I could do that I would be able to keep all the relevant information
stuff (lyrics, music, footnotes} together in the main input file.  As it
stands now I find it necessary to put the footnotes in "by hand"
following each \score block in my "score" file.

Is there a way around this?  Have I missed something in the docs?
