I'm not sure why you need to do this, given that you can't have a
block that's continued anywhere but on the next page (or can you?)

AFAIK you can't "catch the break event" other than getting the page
number using fo:page-number.

I never did it but something like putting a fo:page-marker at the very
end of your flow and referencing it on every page should do the trick.

I guess that markers, like with footnotes, could cause interesting
non-converging behaviour in formatters.

Will you sue me for having replied to this message? And what does
'iconfidential' mean? ;-)
