Sure.
The "existence" of the anonymous box has to be "assumed" (indeed the
spec says "... we assume that there is an anonymous block").

But then the first mentioned test
 http://test.csswg.org/source/contributors/microsoft/submitted/Chapter_9/anonymous-box-generation-001.xht
should probably have its assertion reworded since it claims to prove
the "generation" of the anonymous box, which I don't think is
something provable (at least in this case).

Well, all this is probably just a theoretical matter.
