Generating an index across multiple <fo:page-sequence>'s

I'm putting together a 500 page academic catalog where each of the 60
departments has it's own title page and subsequent content.  The title page
is styled differently then the remaining pages, so each department itself is
a <page-sequence> so that I can style the "first" page of each department
accordingly.  Multiple <page-sequence>'s makes sense in this context and
it's worked smoothly.

I then have to generate an index at the end of the catalog that references
specific id's in the text of the department <page-sequences>'s.  However, if
I have <fo:block id="english"> in the English Department's content, it seems
I can't then reference it by doing <fo:page-number-citation
ref-id="english"> from within the index's <page-sequence>.  I've also tried
<fo:inline id="english"> but no luck.

I know that I can put an id on the <page-sequences>'s themselves and then
reference them, but in this case, I need to reference material inside the
text (i.e. not just the first or last page of a page-sequence).  

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
