There are a couple similar questions in the archives, but no answers. 
Here is what I want to do:

------------
[text]
[text]
[text]
-------------

where each individual block of [text] is in 2 columns, wrapped
independently from the previous and next blocks. The 'column-count'
attribute applies only to <fo:region-body> and I want to do this
multiple times per page, so that doesn't appear to be an option.  Is
it possible to put [text] into a 2 column <fo:table> and have it wrap
the blocks from the first column to the second and automatically
adjust the table height?  Or is there some other way to do this?  It
seems that XSL-FO would have been much more powerful if 'column-count'
could have applied to <fo:block>.
