I know that Antenna House started impementing some of the XSL-FO 2.0
proposed features, but we (OK, _I_) closed the Working Group, in part
because we didn't think we were going to get implementations... (and in
part because we were down to two or three people).

One approach if AH doesn't have extensions you can use might be to work
with their XML representation of the formatted area tree, and swap
positions after formatting.

We spent a long time on this in a meeting in Bologna and made good
progress, but again it was for XSL-FO 2.0. B A possibility again might
be to format the annotations and the main document separately and merge
the area trees - or to use the area trees to get the sizes and make a
third, merged, XSL-FO document that actually combines annotations into
a single block where they need to be one above another. For real evil,
you could possbily combine into tables.B
