as far that I know there is no standard way to have a text block content
dispatched on several pages (even though it is possible to have a text
block printed on every page with the same content).
I guess that your solution is quite a good answer. Anyway I don't figure
out yet another one that would avoid to extend the exportPDf plugin.
