I must be missing something.  Using "display: inline-block" for the root is 
exactly equivalent to using "display: block" (or "display: inline", for that 
matter), according to the CSS2.1 draft I'm looking at here.  So if this rule 
causes this UA to fail the testcase, that would be a bug in the UA.  And we 
should probably add an explicit test along these lines to the test suite (or 
rather a series of tests testing all the possible values of "display" on the root).
