Do you really mean footers? This sounds like you are describing foot
notes, for which this would be desirable behavior. But not for headers and

That said, there certainly will be times when you want multi-line headers
and footers, but not multi-paragraph. The logical way to implement this may
be as paragraphs, but isn't there also a way to force a return within a
single paragraph? I seem to recall a discussion to that effect. Would
using this technique simplify implementation?

Header and footer editing is an important feature that shouldn't be held up
by the additional requirement to create multi-line headers and footers,
assuming the current implementation wouldn't prevent a change in the future.
