To unofficially wear my other hat for a moment, please consider
reviewing the XSL 2.0 Requirements at http://www.w3.org/TR/xslfo20-req/
to see whether they cover your problem.  You may particularly want to
look at Section 2.3, "Feedback from pagination stage", and Section 3.1,
"Including information from formatting time".

The Requirements document encourages providing comments and feedback on
individual requirements using the W3C Bugzilla system at
http://www.w3.org/Bugs/Public/.  See the instructions at
