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 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.

To admit the following syntaxes:
  |^\markup ...
what would be required?

I don't understand what semantics you have in mind for the syntax.
How would it make things easier than using markup today, as in

  composer =  \markup \center-align { "composer" \small "(1847-1973)" }
