FOP does support CMYK JPEGs -- there's a previous thread on this issue 
that I participated in that should document it fairly well.

XSL-FO may provide support for CMYK through its color space features; 
haven't studied it enough to grok it, not sure.

FOP doesn't not support CMYK for the elements it renders.  However, I've 
found that post-processing the PDF is actually fairly straight-forward 
and enables introduction of both spot colors and CMYK colors.  This 
process involves searching through each object in the PDF and replacing 
the RGB commands (PDF: rg/RG) with CMYK (PDF: k/K) or color space (PDF: 
cs/CS, scn/SCN) commands.  It seemed scary at first, but actually not 
that bad.  If anyone has interest in learning more about this technique, 
let me know.
