(By the way, the CSS 2.1 propose here should really be "non-zero
horizontal margins/paddings/borders/" as you have observed.)

Well, your test case:

  # span { margin:0 1px }
  # <div id=test><span></span></div>
  # <div id=ref></div><div id=s_ref>x</div>

shows that :) (whether non-zero margins matter only in standards mode).

What I am saying here is that if you compare this test with

  | div { line-height: 0;} span { margin:0 1px; line-height: normal; }
  | <div id=test>x<span></span></div>
  | <div id=ref>x</div><div id=s_ref>x<span>x</span></div>

you'll see that Firefox passes the former but not the latter. That is,
the <span> in "<div id=test>x<span></span></div>" does contribute to
line height (in a buggy way). This is probably an edgy bug Gecko has,
but the point is that the result could be differnt.

In other words, I guess the best option is to spec the quirk about
"zero-height line boxes" and include both test cases.
