It would certainly be easy to add a new option to ly2dvi to 
give a full header for each score. I see several question marks, 
though; should each score start on a new page? If you use the 
feature to print orchestral parts, you'd want the page numbers
to start from 1 for each new part, ...
can you suggest some set of command line options that covers 
most of the interesting cases? There used to be a '-s' option 
that generated a separate .dvi file for each \score{} section.

As an alternative, you could use lilypond-book, including each
piece using \lilypondfile{}. Then it is trivial to include
the necessary page breaks or set page numbers or the page layout.
Another advantage is that if you update one of the files, 
lilypond-book will only rerun Lilypond on changed pieces, not on
all of them.
