How about using dedicated keywords? Something like:

#+FN_AUTHOR: footnote text
#+FN_TITLE: footnote text

I give these two examples because they are the two places where a
footnote of this type is expected. I know: it's ugly and corseted (what
to do if a title has more than one footnote or an "inner" footnote?).
But I suppose it would be safe for a basic case, since it would only be
necessary to modify org-latex-template, org-odt-template, etc., without
risk of unexpected results.

Best regards,

Juan Manuel
