Eliot, is the 'inside/outside offset-column layout' irrelevant here,
or is that a part of the problem? I'm unsure how they relate.

If both XEP and AH have implemented it, perhaps its something you
should bring up with the WG? 

As to extending it beyond the float property, that seems to 
be rather a big step? Where else do you see it being used?

regards DaveP.

    The only solution I can think of would be to extend the 
    current set of margin, border, padding, and space 
    properties to include inside and outside versions (as well 
    as adding "inside" and "outside" for float= as XSL 
    Formatter has done). For example, given the inside/outside 
    page layout described above, I could create a "margin area" 
    side float like this (in this example, assume the offset 
    margin width is 3 inches):
       <fo:float float="outside">
         <fo:block margin-outside="-3in">
         This is my marginalia block
       </fo:float>This is the contents of my body paragraph.
