As Manuel already indicated, this is currently not possible (certainly
not with FOP 0.20.5).
However, the solution Manuel suggests becomes much simpler if you use
FOP's svn-trunk, which offers support for starts-row and ends-row on
table-cells. You would not need to generate a row element, but just
conditionally add an attribute to the enclosing table-cell. This has
the advantage of making the XSLT much less complicated.
Also fop does not support auto table layout. This means you have to
specify column width on each column. If you do that you know the
overall width of each table and if you know the width of each table you
know how many fit on each line and then you can create a one row n-cell
table for each desired output line in your fo file.
True. This is exactly what makes it possible to keep track of the
accumulated width and add a starts-row property to the cells in
question. The feature we'd really need to implement for this is
fo:inlines with block content, so that we can have inline-tables like
