[xep-support] area measurement with rx:pinpoint

Hi folks,

We are looking for a way to determine the rectangular area (or areas)
generated by a given Formatting Object.

The only way I can see, for now, is to place <rx:pinpoint> objects
before and after a given Formatting Object, then compare the positions
of the pinpoints in the XEP intermediate output format. That will
indeed give us the height of the area, but not the width: it seems that
pinpoints ignore text alignment, and so are always placed on the left
edge of the area.

Does anybody out there know how to position a pinpoint on the right
edge of an area? Or have a better way to do this?
