I don't see any way to do this.  When a <footnote> element
is processed, the following fo objects are placed in the fo file:

  <fo:footnote-body  font-size="{$footnote.font.size}">
     [apply templates to the footnote element]

While you could put a top border property on the
fo:footnote-body or a block within it, that would apply to
every footnote, not just the first one on the page.
Since the FO processor takes the fo:footnote-body elements
and makes the decision about on which page to place them,
there is no way for the stylesheet to designate the
first footnote on a page that should have a top border.
And I don't see a way to tell the FO processor to
do that, either.

Does anyone else have a solution?
Are there any other 'hooks' for processing footnotes?
