You could look at side floats [1], but if you are using oXygen out of the
box, you are probably using FOP, which does not support fo:float [2].

FOP is listed as having partial support for fo:block-container, so you may
be able to do something with positioning block containers, otherwise you
may have to treat your whole document as a table or convert your marginal
notes into footnotes.
