The minimal set is quite a bit larger. As far as I can tell, this is the
minimal FO tree:

<fo:root xmlns:fo="";>
        <fo:simple-page-master page-master-name="master">
            <fo:sequence-specifier-single page-master-name="master"/>
            <fo:block>Hello World!</fo:block>

Sometimes it has been know to give sensible errors but it depends on the
number of prime factors in the number of seconds past the hour.

I'll add it to my list of bug fixes.

At least it does good error recovery!
