If you are up to rolling your own FOP, there's this patch to FOP for
'fox:table-omit-last-footer' and 'fox:table-omit-first-header' extension


In your case, you'd probably put the real table inside a table where the
table header cell's content was the title plus the "cont." text and set it
to omit the table header on its first page.

One of my clients with a similar requirement for table continuation
markers (with non-DocBook XML) reported success after applying the patch
to their custom version of FOP.
