Joerg, Keiron, et al,

This is why I have harped on the theme of lookahead.  The layout design 
simply must accommodate it, and must be able to preserve as much 
information as possible from the initial layout attempts to minimise the 
work of subsequent attempts.  I have, as I have said before, made some 
initial notes on aspects of this.  It is why I believe that a something 
like a layout tree is needed as the bridge between FO and area trees.

I don't pretend to have any actual design worked out, but the broad 
outlines of a solution to this have to be worked out first.
