The term "structure renderer" (as you could find by searching the list 
archive probably ;-) is used here for yet-to-be renderers that don't do 
any layout by themselves.

If you're generating RTF or MIF formats, for example, you usually don't 
need to know on which page a given FO element will go, you leave this 
to the word processor or desktop publishing program that will use the 
generated document.

So these renderers will be plugged in right after the parsing and 
property resolution stages, before the layout stage.
