    You haven't goofed up ... it is a restriction of the current implementation
    and semantics. It's working as currently defined.

    It sounds like a new semantic is needed inside the psmi:page-sequence, that
    being something like a psmi:master-reference-following="" that indicates
    which page-sequence master to use following the breakup of a
    page-sequence. Then, your XSLT can choose when injecting the
    psmi:page-sequence whether a different sequence is needed until the next
    injection or the end of the wrapping page-sequence.

    I'm thinking that master-reference="" stays as it is, unprefixed, to map to
    the equivalent in XSL-FO. By naming this
    psmi:master-reference-following="" then I don't risk any future confusion
    with page-sequence attributes defined by XSL-FO, and I don't make any claim
    that master-reference-following= is any kind of equivalent to an XSL-FO
    property (as I do with the unprefixed properties today).

    Let me see when I can get to this ... I've got a lot on my plate right
    now. I think it is a meaningful improvement to the facility.

    Thanks for describing your situation!
