No, but if you know you want to split on the 10th column (as opposed to
first typesetting the table and looking at the column widths to decide
where to split) then you should be able to do the split while generating
your FO in XSLT (or whatever you are using)

Most of the time this is easy enough although it gets interesting if the
table is already splitting over more than one page, or if you have
complicated spanning entries crossing over the column on which you want
to split.
