You could also do this with markers by making the region-after's extent
overlap the region-body (probably just make it overlap the entire
region-body) and then put a table that will provide the necessary
borders in a marker that is only set in the last row of the real table.

The only thing this complicates is the generation of "normal" footers
(if you have them), which would require a little more effort to position
correctly (i.e., you'd probably have to use a block container with
display-align="after" to force the footer to the bottom of the region-after.
