Follow-up Comment #8, bug #62825 (project groff):

Whoops, I didn't finish editing my reply.

[comment #7 comment #7:]

> I reckon what we can do is leave the existing header trap macro names in
place, but change them to just mark the vertical location with `mk`.  The
footer trap can set its own mark, `rt` to the header, call the macro that
actually formats the header, then `rt` to its own place and proceed normally.
