Here's how this works: Fop.java has this method, getDefaultHander() which creates an FOTreeBuilder. This is actually the class that controls to whole transformation by reacting on SAX events. FOTreeBuilder itself calls an FOEventHandler of which AreaTreeHandler is a subclass. AreaTreeHandler is used for paged formats like PDF and PS where the layout engine kicks in to do the pagination. In the case of flow-oriented formats like RTF and MIF the FOTreeBuilder gets different FOEventHandler subclasses from the RendererFactory (like RTFHandler and MIFHandler). In this latter case there will be no FormattingResults object you can build since you don't know about the number of pages being generated.
So, I think it should be safe to remember the FOTreeBuilder as a member variable in the Fop class (once it is created in getDefaultHandler()) and access that instance later in a getFormattingResults() call. From FOTreeBuilder, you can easily access the AreaTreeHandler through the foEventHandler member variable. Working with the FOUserAgent would be possible but I wouldn't prefer that.
