Dear XSL Editors,

As far as I can tell the XSL-FO 1.1 Recommendation doesn’t tell anything
about footnotes in repeated table headers or footers.

If the header and footer of a table are /not/ to be repeated on each
page spanned by the table (table-omit-header/footer-at-break="true"),
the behaviour is pretty obvious.

But if they must be repeated, how should the footnotes be handled:
- put only on the first page spanned by the table?
- put on each page spanned by the table?
- footnotes in header put on the first page, footnotes in footer put on
  the last page spanned by the table?
Should footnotes even be allowed as descendants of fo:table-header and
fo:table-footer, anyway? Those are a bit like fo:static-content
elements, after all.
