If I have understood your question correctly, the answer is "no".

In XSL-FO 1.0 the dimensions of the page geometry cannot be influenced by 
the dimensions of the content being flowed.

Although in XSL-FO 1.0 the page geometry cannot be influenced by the choice 
of constructs in the content, we have released a free resource (on our web 
site in the "Resource library (free developer tools)" link from our home 
page noted below) that allows you to interleave the constructs of flow in a 
given page sequence between different page geometry masters.  We've called 
this formatting semantic PSMI for "Page Sequence Master Interleave" and 
include an XSLT stylesheet so it can be used with all XSL-FO engines.

I hope this helps.
