Sounds to me like you can fulfill your requirement using a footnote. A 
footnote only takes up space if present. So just put a footnote in your last 
paragraph and it should appear at the bottom of the last page. No need to 
define a region-after.

The only problem with footnotes is that they are a bit buggy in current 
version of FOP. Certain scenarios may produce strange effects, e.g. if last 
paragraph in document happens to be at bottom of page, then there will be room 
for footnote. What should happen is FOP should move last paragraph to next 
page along with footnote, but I dont think this works.
