I understand how title.margin.left works. My point is that if you use 
it for a substantial hanging title in the body of the document, it 
messes up the formatting of other parts of the document (titlepages, 
frontmatter, backmatter). My proposal is to have separate 
title.left.margin parameters for each fo:page-sequence-master, to give 
finer grain control.
