Is it possible to save the FO output when processing?

Is it also possible to use the FO output from some other tool?

I used to use saxon and FOP to generate my PDF. It was sometimes very
useful to have the FO file as an intermediate to check the actual results
of the formatting as well as for tracking down errors. Right now I have XEP
reporting that there are 4 pages references right at the end of my document
that it can't find so the TOC gets a ? instead of a page number. I've
looked at my XML source and there aren't any extra headings that it should
be referencing, but yet it manages to create them.

I've also found some other tools that are useful to run against the FO
output. XML Mind has a tool that reads FO and creates a Word document. With
what I know right now, I will have to run a version through sxaon to get FO
and another run just for XEP, I'd really like to save the extra step if I
