I don't know if XEP supports this (it should and I would be surprised if
it didn't) but the defined FO mechanism is that if you specify any
Unicode decimal digit-class character for the format= attribute of page
sequence, it will use those characters for rendering page numbers. The
Unicode specification has a pretty nice explanation of Arabic and Indic
digits here:

For example, you might do this:

<fo:page-sequence format="&#x0660;"/>

To use Arabic-Indic digits for page numbers.
