AFAIK (not much) the recent acrobats have the ability to export
XML. This in turn means its possible to 'encode' in some way
the document structure within the pdf.
I'm guessing you would need cooperation from the fop team
to make some sort of extension to 'put' this info into the pdf.

Guessing this again is a structural feature, down to the creation
of the pdf.
