When would an fo:float float past the end of the flow?  Does it not float 
to the top of the page in which the float is defined, and would it not, 
therefore, push the point where the float is defined off to the next page 
when both won't fit?  Then, wouldn't the last block be after that point, 
thus would be at the end of the document?

In 6.10.2, under "Constraints:", it states:

   A block-area generated by the fo:float may only be descendant
   from a before-float-reference-area that is (a) descendant
   from a "region-reference-area" generated using the
   region-master for the region to which the flow that has the
   fo:float as a descendant is assigned, and (b) is descendant
   from the same page containing the anchor-area, or from a page
   following that page.

While I can understand (and expect) under (b) the presence on the same 
page, I cannot see in section 6.10 how under (b) a float is allowed on a 
subsequent page.
