For me, the division is simple:
* Anything declared as part of %text is text-level (non-block).
* Anything else, except HTML, HEAD, BODY and head elements, is
block-level.

There are some special cases, of course - is TABLE block-level or
not? I'd stick it in the "other" group, though. A block-level element
is something which may contain %text directly.
