How about:
An fo:table is wider than the available room in
inline-progression-dimension. Adjusting end-indent based on
overconstrained geometry rules (XSL 1.1, ch. 5.3.4)

I'd like to have the hint about overconstrained geometry in there
because this condition is not strictly an overflow. It's just a
conflict of values which is resolved based on rules in the spec. It's
also just a warning, not an error.

It's always about IPD, yes.
