Thanks for the quick response! The float seems to do the job nicely. But I'm
having trouble aligning it. I've tried baseline-shift and alignment-adjust
(among other properties) on both the fo:float and the table within. And I
can't seem to reposition the rendered table with respect to the line on
which I've declared the float. Any other tips?

You can put the table (or any other element) in a side float
(float="start" or float="end"). Text will flow around the other side and
There is no way in XSL-FO 1.0 to have text automatically wrap on both
sides of another flow object. [This feature was discussed at some length
at one of our face-to-face meetings and we convinced ourselves that
the behavior had too much potential complexity to be able to address it
in XSL-FO 1.1.]

No. You can only span in direction or the other.
But I think a side float should do what you need.
