I haven't found a way of doing that "the easy way" beyond defining a 
page master and using tables and regions to define the portions of the 
document that fall into regions of a page with cutouts.  We're using FOP 
to generate badges for conference attendees.  Measuring the target page 
areas works just fine as long as you have a printer that provides 1:1 
page dimensions.  We're testing on an Epson Stylus Color 900 with 
excellent results.

The Epson will accept exact page measurements; we just have to be 
careful not to print out of the printer's physical margins (about 0.2" 
top and bottom of the page).

(We're doing this with Apache FOP 0.20.5 -- it has some limitations but 
they're easy to get around.)
