For whatever object by which you're grouping the footnotes, do
something like

(element sect1
	 (sosofo-append (process-children)
			(with-mode footnotes

The mode transparently processes all children except the footnotes:

(mode footnotes
      (default (process-node-list (element-children)))

      (element footnote

In the main mode, just make a reference.

(element footnote
