normally you could set the register from within an extension using:

$GLOBALS['TSFE']->register['key'] = $value;

but in your case I guess setting the register key for the header from an
extension will be too late in the rendering process. I don't know where
exactly and when the register is accessed for the rendering of the
header, so maybe someone could clarify this.

Why not use ts conditions - as you wrote yourself - and then set the
header wraps when these conditions are met? Something like:

[your condition is met]
<h3 class="myclass">|</h3>

Have a look at the conditions section of TSRef [1] and search for
userFunc to see how to set up your own conditions.
