That seems pretty explicit as to where overflow= is supported.

Your overflow= is not being specified on either an absolutely-positioned
block-container or on a perimeter region specification.
Note that setting the inline-progression-dimension sets a new wrapping
length for the line, so text naturally wraps at the end of the
inline-progression-dimension. I believe you cannot ask XSL-FO 1.0 to
truncate at the *end* of a line, only at the after-edge of the area of a
Did you mean to say block-progression-dimension? Even so, you have yet to
specify the kind of area documented to support the overflow= property, so I
would not expect your snippet to work.
I hope this helps.
