I can't achieve my goal in a stable matter with list blocks, cause
provisional-distance-between-starts value depends ahead of text length to be
used for label and having then same provisional-label-separation still
doesn't help to properly align text left.
Why such natural requirement of tab stops is not included in FO?
And another thought on fo:leader. There is nice feature of it like
leader-alignment="reference-area". The only enhancement needed for my case
is to have additional attribute for it like
right-align-at-nearest-tab="0.5in" instead of max=100% and then it should be
not so hard to calculate that position (I don't see any difference actually
with calculation case of max=100%).
What do you think?
