An alternative would be to create a dedicated, named flow on the  
master page with auto-connect turned off. This would result in a text  
field on each page that you could use to enter the issue or revision  

However, some potential issues come to mind. Whether you use a master  
page or a text flow to track the dates, it is unlikely that the text  
will stay in sync with the master page. As you add new text to the  
document, the text will flow through as many pages as necessary to  
format the document.

An alternative might be to auto-number your highest level headings and  
include a table in the front matter that tracks revisions to the major  
sections in the document.
