(I'm absolutly sorry, I have posted this many times in related issues. It is my first contribution to the 
bug tracking system, so I'm not used to it... Now I thinj it deserve a particular issue)

Why not making the format->page dialog only relative to the page (i.e. the size of the page, its 
background, its border for the whole page, the presence or not of a header/footer, the global printer 
margins...) ?

And then make the text zone the main frame, the header also a frame, the footer also a frame... For 
each frame, it will be possible to set the border, the background... These frames would be editable as 
frame styles.

I think it would be the most logic thing! Because for the moment we have in the same dialog options 
only related to the page (its size) and some other only related to the main text area (i.e. its margin, 
columns, background and border). Yet a page is a page, and a frame is frame!
