@LimitedAtonement: Maybe give the Memoir class a shot - it solved the problem for me: ctan.org/tex-archive/macros/latex/contrib/memoir

... I guess what I need is the height of multicol with the column sizing of tabularx. :)

Thanks for the answer – this is excellent, and pretty close to the sort of solution I've been thinking of. pdflscape is great; for some reason I wasn't using it, but I can't remember why now. :o) The one constraint I have (that I didn't note in the question - sorry; that's why I was using {tabularx}{...}{Xc}) is that the width of the X block should be "max(.5\linewidth, \linewidth - D)" eg X should be 70% of the width when the width of D is 30%. I'm tinkering now to see if I can figure that out.

@Werner: It is part of a larger, portrait-oriented document with content preceding it (but likely not following it).

comment Vertical centering of text in a page when text contains enumerations
Thanks for the answer – great insight. In place of vspace, is there an option you would you suggest? Is the vfil/vfill option better in any way?

I'm quite curious, too. It seems counterintuitive that wrapping an enumeration in a box would improve the pagination; I'd expect the opposite (if anything) to happen to proper pagination by the TeX algorithms (as enumerations, you'd think, would break at each \item, whereas a minipage would break with less information about the 'break-ability' of its contents (i.e. you'd think minipage would obfuscate the relevant semantics by "hiding" the list's breakable places). Great solution though, @Herbert, but it seems unintuitive (to me)! I'd love to know more.

@Alan Munn: The vfil solution seemingly has the same effect/problem as vplace
