This is part of the reason why I *strongly* prefer using system variables 
and user variables to construct headers and footers. Another reason is that
I see absolutely no benefit to having active hyperlinks in the headers and 
footers of the PDF I produce that take the reader to some strange and
non-useful location like the title page. One set of templates I once had to
work with used cross-references in the headers and footers, and I absolutely
hated it.

It's probably possible to make x-refs in headers and footers behave better
with some FrameScript scripting, but I just don't see the point. With the 
possible exception of "page x of y" page numbering, I haven't yet 
encountered any requirement for information in headers and footers that
I wasn't able to accomplish more directly using variables.
