The resulting report would be HUGE and probably a bit unwieldy but I guess that's OK with the IT guys?
There's an upward limitation of three sorts and one across in the modular template reports and in pmf_booklet_data - it's designed for consumers looking to report on stuff not for IT to validate data. So you'd need to write a custom report to do this.
Note that if hierarchical recursion (rather than pulling out one level per Dimension) is expected this is a major coding project.
Note: If you're just doing a vertical sort you have no limits. For horizontal sorts there is a break limit for ACROSS in FOCUS so you have to be cognizant of your breaks.

I'll take any questions about PMF - business or technical - anytime!
I was going to tackle building this if it was as easy as using PMF_BOOKLET_DATA to drive the query, out of goodwill and a desire to smooth my client's way. Since the PMF query engine (that's how I refer to PMF_BOOKLET_DATA) is built to support only three by fields and one across, I am going to stop right here.
Unfortunately, there's no room in my project plant to build a custom report based on the PMF datamart. In fact, I consider the PMF data model to be a bit of a black box, and that's why I only ever use the query engine to drive custom content. I just can't be sure that I would be able to report out measure values as they should be reported if I tried it on my own. There's also the concept of upgrades to consider, which would certainly break any pure custom coded work.
So, thank you for your time and have a great rest of your day.
