Some apparent limitations of LilyPond headers:
- My score parts place the instrument name up left; LilyPond does that under the title. - On the subsequent pages, my score parts put the instrument name in the same type as on the front page; LilyPond uses a plain (roman) type. One can override this by using \markup, but LilyPond insist adding a \bold on the front page, in general not a big problem, but one would think that \roman should override it.

not a bug: \roman refers to family, while \bold refers to weight.

I've just added a new markup command \normal-text which brings you
back to the default text font. It will appear in the next 2.6.x and
2.7.x releases.

- I have a score (Ernest Bloch, "Suite Modale for Flute and Piano") which has an additional header field "duration". It is placed to the left, over the instrument name.

Good idea. Any takers for a patch? It's just adding it to titling-init.ly and the documentation.

The question is what the field should be called. "Duration" is just
one of many possible uses for an extra field at this position.

Also, I'm not sure about exactly what position you want. Does
"over the instrument name" refer to the default instrument name
position given by LilyPond or the position up left where you want
it? Can you possibly reuse the "poet" field?
