After reviewing James Tauber's suggestion, the XSL-WG decided to do the
following since it fits better with certain possible future extensions.

  We added a 'region-name' property to all the fo:*-region definitions. So
you can name your footer region in the master for your odd-numbered pages
to 'odd-page-footer', the one in your master for the even-numbered pages to
'even-page-footer', and the one in the master you use for the first page in
a page-sequence to 'first-page-footer'; then you create 3 static-content
objects and use the flow-name property to assign one static content to the
'odd-page-footer', another to the 'even-page-footer', and the third to the
first-page-footer.

We asked James Tauber if this was acceptable and he agreed.

This e-mail reflects the opinion of the Editor of the XSL (formatting
   objects) Specification. This is my interpretation of the
   current (majority) opinion of the portion of the XSL-WG that
   is working on formatting objects. It may not reflect the opinions
   of all members of the XSL-WG or even of all members of the portion
   of the WG that is working on the formatting objects. It is subject
   to change.
