Well, I did not really wait... ;-) 
I've already tried this approach, and I got this working, apart from 'not
re-get them if they do not contribute content'. If you could tell me what
condition I need to check for, that would save me the time to go looking.

Right now, I have:
-> added a footnoteList member to ActiveCell, with accompanying accessor
-> modified gotoNextLegalBreak(): if the element is a KnuthBlockBox and has
anchors, then add the footnotes to the added member-list
-> modified TableStepper (loop +/- line 207) to use the accessor; if the
ActiveCell has footnotes, a KnuthBlockBox is generated further on, else a
normal Box.

Thanks for the helpful feedback so far! It's giving me better insight into
table-layout as well, which could come in handy at some point. ;-)
