Sorry if this is not appropriate as I have not followed this closely.

Question: Can the table + content be in its own page-sequence?

If the answer is yes, I do not see why you could not use ...
page-position="only" method with no continued message 
page-position="first" with continued message (of course, put it into a table
cell that would join perfectly with the flowing table if you like)
page-position="rest" with continued message
page-position="last" method with no continued message

Or, if preferred without "only" which I forget may also be a 1.1 concept:

<page-sequence-master master-name="pages">

   <!-- Sequence for single-page documents -->
   <repeatable-page-master-alternatives maximum-repeats="1">
        <conditional-page-master-reference page-position="last"

   <!-- Sequence for multi-page documents -->
       <conditional-page-master-reference page-position="first"
       <conditional-page-master-reference page-position="last"

One final detail. At the moment both

<fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-class-name="continued"
<fo:retrieve-marker retrieve-class-name="firstonly"

are placed in fo:static-content inside page footer of first page. Works

But the first of the two retrieve-markers should ideally be at the end of
the table in region body that continues over more than the first page when
"long". Like if a footer for that table could be turned on but only shown
for first page. Nice if "continued" looks like a label inside the table that

I can see in the spec that we have different values for "retrieve-position",
but I must admit that I haven't seen the light yet. All these concepts are
new to me.

Any help, hints?
