An important information for users producing book-style documents is, for 
each page, the difference between the available page heigth and the actual 
content height.

Even if it is not a real "error" to create them, underfull pages are not 
beautiful. This information, that could be taken from the 
PageBreakPositions, would allow users to easily check if fop produced 
"good" pages without the need to open the pdf and look at it.
