It is?  This text at http://www.w3.org/TR/CSS21/selector.html#first-line-pseudo 
seems relevant:

   The "first formatted line" of an element may occur inside
   a block-level descendant in the same flow (i.e., a block-level
   descendant that is not positioned and not a float). E.g., the
   first line of the DIV in <DIV><P>This line...</P></DIV> is the
   first line of the P (assuming that both P and DIV are block-level).
