If you're generating XSL-FO using XSLT (as is intended), attribute
sets can be really useful. Define an attribute set for each 'class',
so things like:

<xsl:attribute-set name="paragraph">
  <xsl:attribute name="font-size">12</xsl:attribute>
  <xsl:attribute name="text-align">justify</xsl:attribute>

You can then use an attribute set on a particular fo:block with

  <fo:block xsl:use-attribute-sets="paragraph">

Attribute sets can be based on other attribute sets, and you can use
several attribute sets on any particular element if you want to (in
effect having several classes).
