Antenna House, as an extension, allows fo:float within fo:change-bar-begin
[1], so use that with 'change-bar-placement="outside".

You can use 'text-align="outside"' [3] to align the numbers to the outside
of the page.

You may also be able to use Antenna House's float extension [2], but it's
not clear to me whether or not 'sidenote' applies only to CSS.
