Subject: (sub)section titles rendered as fo:inline for Legal Contracts?


I am using Docbook 5.0b1 with Saxon 6.5.5 and RenderX XEP 4.4 to markup 
a legal contract (Docbook XML -> FO -> PDF).
I have lots of numbered sections where the titles are inline, for example:

  *_1. At Will Employment_.* I understand and acknowledge that my
  employment with the Company is for an unspecified duration and
  constitutes “at-will” employment.


    *_2a) Company Information_.* I agree at all times during the term of
    my employment and thereafter, to hold in strictest confidence, and
    not to use, except for the benefit of the Company, or to disclose to
    any person, firm or corporation without written authorization of the
    Manager of the Company, any Confidential Information of the Company,
    except to the extent required by law or legal process.

It seems that in order to create something like this in my PDF output, I 
would have to make some
pretty heavy customizations of <xsl:template match="section"> within 

To summarize, I would like sections at level 2 to be fo:block, but 
sections > level 2 to be fo:inline


Can anyone think of an easier way to get inline titles? Maybe use an 
alternate markup other than section?
Has anyone else tried to use DocBook for legal contracts?
