I had stumbled on the following tweet some time ago which i found interesting that we dont provide an easy means of doing this.
@AnnaLPeak I know that just making the word "Notes" appear above a list of endnotes in Libreoffice is much harder than it should be.
We provide a heading naming when a user inserts a TOC, so it would also be good if we provide a simple dialog asking if the user wishes to add a name above the list of endnotes during the process that it creates the endnote page, as i wasnt able to do it from the testing that i tried.
Related AskLO thread with steps describing the current method of placing a heading above endnotes:
Admittedly it would be good to make this easier (thus I agree). Hopefully any solution does not affect existing documents using this method.
Tried out your solution from askLibO and it did work, though it showed a line between the 'Notes' and the endnotes if you dont page break using 'Endnotes'.
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval

Would use the footnote and endnote settings dialog (.uno:FootnoteDialog) to specify title text and a paragraph style for the title (the footnote tab has a number of options right now).
Any technical blocker, Mike?

I'd say it would be a good development, having something in common with another annotations missing from the endnotes: *chapter headings* on the respective pages that would allow to restart endnotes numbering per chapter - see https://ask.libreoffice.org/t/old-story-still-collect-footnotes-at-the-end-of-document-restart-numbering-per-chapter/73897/2.
I suppose it's not impossible, just would need some more metadata stored for endnotes configuration, which implies extending ODF.
