You have never been able to copy what's in the mode-line.  The new
header-line has the same limitation.  I don't see that as wrong (but a
general limitation on some elements of an emacs frame.)

That information is also shown as the buffer name in the mode-line.
What's the point of duplicating it in the header line?
