> 2) What \startstandardmakeup do then? And what is the purpose of defining custom makeups?                                                      
From the source (and I am positive this is also mentioned in the                
big manual):                                                                    

A makeup is a separate page, like a title page or colofon.                   
There is one standard makeup page, but you can define more                   
if needed.                                                                   

As can be seen in                        
it is a page type with a special layout / header & footer sections              
that last only temporarily. The key point is that such a page                   
does not (have to) rely on the current page layout style, which                 
is especially useful for title pages.

indeed they are obsolete ... layers are better for that
