Wow!!  Errr, is that something that LaTex or Scribus might be better
at?  If so can they read and work with the output from LO? 

TeX, LaTeX, and their family can certainly do footnotes. However, I
don't think they are as capable at importing LO/OOo text as Scribus is.

Scribus will directly import text from Writer, and preserve styles in
the process. You can even map the Writer styles to Scribus styles if
you want. Scribus works very well with LO/OOo.

However, the current stable version of Scribus (1.41) lacks footnotes
and tables, although they are on the roadmap for the next release. As
for footnotes, however, Scribus will preserve the superscripts in the
text, and will convert the text of the footnotes to endnotes. After
importing the text to Scribus you can cut the endnotes off the end of
the story and paste in as a new story. The new story can be manually
threaded to text frames at the bottom of the appropriate pages. Unless
you have a gazillion footnotes, this works very well.
