[xep-support] Can't get external graphic to scale to the page body size automatically

I am using "fo:external-graphic" to insert an external pdf page into a page
body. It is possible for the page body to be smaller then the pdf actual
size. Therefore, I want to force the PDF to be scaled to fit the page body.
However, I am unable to do this automatically. I tried several combinations
of properties including scaling="uniform", but it doesn't work. I can only
get the graphic to shrink if I specify the height to be less then 100%, but
I don't want to explicitly have to do this. Below is an example that doesn't
work if the page body is too small.

Am I doing something wrong? You help will be appreciated.
