[docbook-apps] Re: 'pgwide' attribute in 'figure' element as a child of 'glossdef'

Actually there's an FO specbug here. Technically, span is only allowed
on the top-most fo:block (or other fo:element) so by the time you've
nested down to where you need it, it doesn't work.

Well, as Bob pointed out, span wouldn't really help here even if it
did work.

Would setting the left and right margins to zero if pgwide=1 is
specified do The Right Thing?

Should the stylesheets do that?
