I am not sure if this helps, but the Apache FOP team is working on
implementing table-markers which allows fo:retrieve-table-marker in the body.
It is currently implemented in the trunk. I test it this morning for a project
I am working on and works well.

content still goes into static content and not the body region.  You will have
to adjust the footer height to make it look like it is content.  However,
since your "continued" is still in the static content, it cannot appear as if
it is inside your bordered table in the body content.  If your table were not
bordered, then the adjusted footer height would place the "continued" text
looking as if it were the next line of the body.

for you that uses marker retrieval.  Solving your problem with an "only"
implementation is no better than solving your problem with marker retrieval,
because both solutions are using static content.
