Section 5.12.1 already contains this text:

    A UA should act as if the fictional start tag of the first-line
    pseudo-element is just inside the smallest enclosing block-level
    element. (Since CSS1 and CSS2 were silent on this case, authors
    should not rely on this behavior.) Here is an example. The
    fictional tag sequence for

      <DIV>
	<P>First paragraph</P>
	<P>Second paragraph</P>
      </DIV>

    is 

      <DIV>
        <P><DIV:first-line><P:first-line>First paragraph</P:first-line></DIV:first-line></P>
        <P><P:first-line>Second paragraph</P:first-line></P>
      </DIV>

That seems to define exactly what you want.
