Hello Marcus 

If I understand you correctly, you could do this.

First, write your entire header as one TypoScript object and map that to your templates with outer mapping.

Next write your header like this

lib.header = COA
lib.heade.wrap = <div class="{$myHeaderClass}">|</div>
lib.heade.10 = TEXT
lib.heade.10.value = My Header Stuff

You can then set your header class in section with the constant:  myHeaderClass

You will also need to set that constant on the root of your site for a default.
