Hello Paolo,

as already pointed out you can customize the footer markup to contain anything you want, including custom header fields (also you can implement stuff like swapping of page number position depending on global flags or something).

Then a footer does not need to be recurring. A footer is just something printed below the actual content.

So I'd consider using footer markup as a quite clean way of doing such things.

I think you're overthinking things here: think of copyright as a name
for any text you might want to put at the bottom of the first page.

It's not important what I think, it is important what can be read on the code at a glance. 
If I write copyright = "Composed in 2021", then I have to add a comment note above that line as memo for explaining that the copyright field was used for another purpose. Not a clean code, IMHO.
