(sorry, trying again this time with complete sentences mentioning the
referenced sections of the standard ... not sure what happened last time
around in my haste)

I was going to try <fo:wrapper id="last-page"/> after all the contents of

AFAIK XSL Formatter doesn't support references to fo:wrapper. You must use
fo:inline or fo:block to place named anchor into document. This behaviour
of XSL Formatter is deviation from XSL Spec.
I disagree. I think the behaviour of a formatter adding an id to the area
tree for a <wrapper> element is a deviation from the XSL specification.
In the definition of 6.6.11 fo:page-number-citation regarding ref-id= it
states the reference is to "the first normal area returned by the
formatting object with an id trait matching the ref-id trait".
In the definition of 6.11.2 fo:wrapper it states "The fo:wrapper formatting
object does not generate any areas."
Therefore, an empty wrapper adds nothing to the area tree and ref-id= has
nothing to point to.
I think the behaviour witnessed is exactly as specified.
I hope this helps.
