Ability to anchor graphics across spreads
Because with accessibility it is important to anchor graphics, sometimes when the graphic reference is on the previous spread or the next spread, it is necessary to anchor to another spread when the graphic doesn't fit. When you do this, indesign will automatically move the graphic to another page. You should have the ability to anchor something across spreads.

On a PhD thesis, tables have to be placed at the top/bottom of the page.
The dialogue box could have 'next page' secondary option, i.e. if it doesn't fit, move it to top of next page.

As more countries require accessible document files, graphic designers need this feature in order to make a fully accessible PDF or EPUB of their work.
Here are 2 inquiries from the Adobe Forums that appear within hours of each other.
Please create a way to allow a designer to anchor a graphic (or other element, such as another text frame for a sidebar) between spreads.
The work arounds for this a very time-consuming and not the best solution for accessibility.

Especially common problem in long documents, such as reports, where the chart graphic won't fit on the page where it's referenced in the body text.
We need to be able to anchor graphics (and groups, and text frames) to a spread that is before/after the one where they are visible.
