i agree with you here.  the design of the document is up to the author. 
where the footnotes, end note page notes, what ever you want to call
them and where you want to put them is definitely up to the author.  i
guess i got confused with what you meant when you wrote about the
absolute and relative positioning aspect of placing the footnotes.

what exactly did you mean?  i thought that if you place a text frame or
image frame on the page that it was absolutely positioned.
