This is straight forward. You need to create a fo:page-sequence-master like this:

<fo:page-sequence-master master-name="all">
<fo:repeatable-page-master-reference master-reference="1to3" maximum-repeats="3"/>
<fo:repeatable-page-master-reference master-reference="4to5" maximum-repeats="2"/>
<fo:repeatable-page-master-reference master-reference="6to10" 

and then reference it from your page sequence:

<fo:page-sequence master-reference="all">

I dont think you need to do this.
