Right. There are always things that a human will have to do manually. (I
don't think this is restricted to paper. The example you gave is done online

To give a little insight into my *long term* vision for FOP. Eventually, I
would like to put a GUI interface on top to allow exactly this kind of human
fine-tuning. The FOP engine does an initial layout and then a human can
override line/column/page breaks, hyphenation, kerning, etc., saving back as
formatting objects again.
