Thanks for Gavin's input, which is accurate to my knowledge.

Correct, FOP does not currently support retrieve-table-marker. There has
been no activity on implementing this feature, so it definitely will not be
in FOP 1.1. I can't say when a patch or a volunteer will materialize to
work on this, so it will remain TBD until that time.
