Where are properties prioritised Tony?
Pauls comment was 'where sensible/appropriate' or similar.
That seems rather more apposite and useful to an author?

Which is plainly daft and of little use to a stylesheet author?

Which surely is back in the domain of daft again?
there must be some way to apply common sense to
this aspect of xsl-fo.

It may be for the entire list. I've pulled apart Appendix A
to produce 'a' list.
Picking a sensible list likely to
implemented for an fo seems less easy.

Prioritizing them might be interesting.
Expressing a common sense list per element would be a
