How do you make breakable links then?

Well yes ;-) when I tested this for the headers and footers in latex
it took me some time to get it right, so it is not something for the
casual user but should be used with care.

Btw: we naturally take also other solutions. Some attribute or
similar would be fine too. The main point is to have something that
allows to disable linking of header and footer and doesn't rely on
the box level, which we can't control there.
