After other duties I am back :-) 

Looking into the code accessing arbitrary FO objects inside specific
LayoutManager is impossible.

I've made some experiments and what seems to be a viable option is storing
index-specific FO properties (when processing particular FO in
object-specific LayoutManager) into a map inside
AbstractPageSequenceLayoutManager and access this map via new public getter,
e.g. getPSLM().getIndexKeyReferenceInfoMap()

For final validation of this approach I need to implement some other
changes, but I need some help. I'll create separate threads.
