Unavoidable for "Layout rendering", isn't it?
I thought structure-based rendering wouldn't need the area tree.

How hard would it be to render the FOTree in XSL-FO (based on SAX 
events) with all possible attributes resolved? 

Speaking specifically about the jfor RTF converter, this would allow it 
to be used as a FOP renderer without needing as much code changes as an 
API-based integration. Might be a little slower but much more flexible.

This would allow the parser and property resolver (is that the right 
term?) components of FOP to be reused by jfor and future 
structure-based renderers.
