A good plan. Only one thing. Where's the 'class' attribute in XSL-FO? The 
XSL-FO namespace permits attributes that are used as formatting object 
properties, but 'class' isn't one of 'em. The granularity would have to be 
enwidened, such that you 'scope' a series of notionally grouped properties 
that form your artificial 'class' notion or requirement. By which time, 
editing the stylesheet like one is supposed to do begins to look jolly
