Per XSL-FO 1.1 [1]:

"Property writing-mode applies to: fo:page-sequence, fo:simple-page-master,
fo:region-body, fo:region-before, fo:region-after, fo:region-start,
fo:region-end, fo:block-container, fo:inline-container, and fo:table."

As you can, none of these is fo:block. You need to specify it on fo:table
or something higher up the tree. Note that specifying a RTL WM on fo:table
causes columns to be numbered from right to left, i.e., the first column
will be right-most.
