Is there an "automated" way using styles (or something) to create a motion picture poster credit block? Typical of the formatting is for an artistic task to be stacked on two lines flush right to the name that follows which is the height of the two stacked lines. So you might have execuive producer 10/9 flush right Univers 39 with the producer's name 22 pt. But immediatelly following that on the same visual line you might have directed by on two lines followed by the director's name. The way I am doing it now, each name is it's own little "production" requiring extra spaces to line things up visually and the constant use of baseline shift. There's gotta be a better way.
Yes, lobby posters or newspaper ads.
In searching around the Internet, I came up info that said this was easy to do in Illustrator because of the ability to compose in Asian Warichu fashion, something that the English version of InDesign doesn't have -- at least not in CS5.5. Does the English version of ID CS6.0 have this?

Sorry for not carefully reading your post. I suspect Peter's right that you'll need some kind of table or repeated text boxes. But you can get a list item stacked using a variation of the right left tab example I posted and avoid lining things up with spaces and baseline shifts or creating a complex table. This could be done with two nested styles and then just step and repeat the text box:
