This is a good reason for making your Table footnote format have a smaller 
format, so that the user realizes the s/he is in a footnote flow. 

I had an example at work today where two table footnotes were at the bottom of 
a table that spanned multiple pages. One was at that bottom of the last page of 
the table, the second was at the top of the following page. That page was the 
last page of the document. Two paragraphs were to follow the table, but one was 
inserted into the same flow with the second footnote. The other was in the main 
flow just past the footnote. The end of flow marker at the end of the footnote 
flow was the only thing that let you know that something was amiss since the 
fonts were the same size for both the body text in the main flow and the text 
in the footnotes.

The table was just wide enough to make the indent for the footnote line up with 
the body text indent.

I expect that at  some point in the life of this document, the footnote was at 
the end of the document with the end of the main text flow just above the table 
(5 pages back) on the paragraph where the table was anchored. Seeing the end of 
flow in the footnote or having turned off Text Symbols, the person adding the 
not just clicked at the end of the text, hit Return and formatted the next 
paragraph with a Body paratag (of course, it didn't line up, since its indent 
was now coming from a point related to the edge of the table and not the left 
side of the text box on the master page. So they just overrode the format to 
make it line up as it should. 

So the next problem is, what do you do when the page fills up with the footnote 
and it can't wrap all that text to the next page?
