You will need separate XSL-FO tables for each of
your tableBody constructs, where the FO table
header is the combination of the common table
header and that tableBody's initial row. When
the processor breaks the page, its header (the
combination of the common header and the specific header) get reproduced.

Provided you don't do space-before= or
space-after= the table tops and bottoms will abut
and will appear seamless to the reader.

I hope this helps.
