Yup, you're right about the general idea, but IIC, borders are yet
unimplemented for the regions (in FOP that is).

So what I actually meant by 'leave the borders where they are' was to leave
them on the block-container in the static content...

... that way this should pose no real problem. You can do the same BTW for
the region-start and region-end to have the background 'extend' beyond the
region-body's boundaries (--and have static-contents in them to add a twist
to the borders)

Well, depends on what you call easy, not? ;)

Have fun!
