Pascal Sancho updated FOP-2293:

    Attachment: multi-switch_bestfit.fo

Regarding your latest test.fo case, I don't understand how you plan to add the 
whitespace management extension.

IIUC, and based on GA suggestion, I've imagined something like that:
 - use a fo:multi-switch structure, with some fo:multi-case
 - add the fox:fitting-strategy attribute directly on fo:multi-switch element
 - use fo:multi-toggle only if needed by extension implementation, i.e. adding 
either a new fox:atttribute, or a new fox:value for the switch-to attribute; 
this addition aiming to indicate witch strategy is used.

This is illustrated in the proposed FO file, with 3 alternatives:
case 1: without fo:multi-toggle
case 2: with fo:multi-toggle and new attribute fox:auto-switch
case 3: with fo:multi-toggle and new value "fox:bestfit" for attribute switch-to

the 3rd case breaks the REC conformance, so I don't like it.

> I have been working on an extension for whitespace management, similar to 
> what's described here: 
> http://wiki.apache.org/xmlgraphics-fop/WhitespaceManagement
> The logic of the extension is very simple: the user defines a set of 
> alternatives that he wishes to insert at the end of a page, then if there is 
> enough space left, FOP will pick the alternative that best matches the user's 
> selection criteria (first fit, smallest fit, biggest fit).
> This is my first work on FOP and it took me almost 2 months to reach this 
> stage in development. But it's not the end of course, so I'm relying on your 
> feedback to improve it.
> Thank you
