Errr.... In the specification it says that you can specify "media-usage" 
property to one of :

	auto | paginate | bounded-in-one-dimension | unbounded

"bounded-in-one-dimension" is defined as :

	Only one page is generated per fo:page-sequence descendant from the fo:root.
	Exactly one of "page-height" or "page-width" must be specified on the first
	page master that is used. The size of the page in the other dimension is
	determined by the content flowed into the page. 

Isn't that contradictory with what you say? Sorry in advance if there is any 
misunderstanding from my part.

Note: I'm leaving for a vacation in a few hours, so I won't be able to read 
your answer before a few weeks?
