Here's a sample of a layout-master-set that has different page headers
for the first and other pages. The important hint is the region-name
that is overridden in fo:region-before.

        <fo:simple-page-master master-name="IS-11" page-height="29.7cm" 
page-width="21cm" margin-left="1.5cm" margin-right="1.3cm" margin-top="12mm" 
                <fo:region-before region-name="doc-header" extent="71mm"/>
                <fo:region-body margin-top="73mm" margin-bottom="10mm"/>
                <fo:region-after extent="10mm"/>
        <fo:simple-page-master master-name="IS-12" page-height="29.7cm" 
page-width="21cm" margin-left="1.5cm" margin-right="1.3cm" margin-top="34mm" 
                <fo:region-before region-name="other-page-header" 
                <fo:region-body margin-top="19mm" margin-bottom="10mm"/>
                <fo:region-after extent="10mm"/>
        <fo:page-sequence-master master-name="invoice">
master-reference="IS-11" page-position="first"/>

Further down the document you'll then have the following:

<fo:static-content flow-name="doc-header">

<fo:static-content flow-name="other-page-header">

instead of 

<fo:static-content flow-name="xsl-region-before">

This lets you define separate page headers. What you currently can't do
is define a conditional-page-master-reference for page-position="last".
This is not implemented.
