Is it possible to have a dynamic fo:table in xsl-region-before?

It is possible to extract content from a page *into* a header, and that content could, indeed, be a table. The construct is <retrieve-marker>, with the <table> inside of the <marker>. According to 6.11.3 "An fo:marker may contain any formatting objects that are permitted as a replacement of any fo:retrieve-marker that retrieves the fo:marker's children."

If it matters, I have a data-driven fo:table in the body.

I have experimented with two tables in the xsl-region-body to get the same
effect, but I need the top table to persist across pages (it's a page

Can it be a table header instead? Table headers are repeated at the top of the table body on every page in which a portion of the table body appears.

I hope this helps.
