block-containers when absolutely positioned are not considered when the 
flow is laid out. This effect is desirable in certain scenarios.

One way to achieve what you want is to use fo:footnotes instead. They 
will always be positioned at the bottom of the page on which they occur 
and the space allowed for the flow (your table in this case) is reduced 
according to the size of the footnotes.
