    If I understand correctly your need, those are not footnotes but marginalia,
    that is, side notes on margins synchronized with the reference points.
    Those are achievable with side floats. In an earlier message to this list

    Alexander Peshkov had posted a good example of such use.

    Please note that it will only work with XEP 3.
