There is a "TODO Ghost it all" comment in the code which may be the opacity
approach. I'm lost on the "Users can hide the advanced header/footer menus." 

My vote is for moving focus to the frame menu button. This suggests
implementation of keyboard input handling for the add header/footer frame menu
button, the button that shows with the + after the text. Currently an escape
key press when the cursor is in the header/footer edit window moves focus to
the main document. Pressing the escape key when the non empty header/footer
frame menu button pop up menu is active closes the pop up menu and places focus
on the frame menu button. Escape key from this state does nothing. Move focus
to the header/footer edit window if header/footer is not empty or to the main
document if header/footer is empty seems logical. I didn't find a way to move
focus to the header/footer edit window or activate the frame menu button using
the keyboard.
