Firstly the Area Tree is unavoidable. We must have a place to do the 
layout and to store the page information.
If you want this area tree turned into sax events, it really seems like an 
unecessary step but there is an xml renderer (admittedly simply writes

The FO Tree - Layout - Area Tree are the three core issues. This is what
