What I could need well is some kind of symlink to a piece of text or a 
phrase, e. g. a month's name to make sure this month appears all over 
the document in whatever font or style it's needed there.

It then might help to be able to produce the text automagically by some 
field type such as date (not in my case, but there might be others who 
can need it).
