Agree. Done (in the group version; I'll push a new version out to dev in a couple of days). Noted that 2.1 is ok on this point.

Yes, we've struggled with this.  I don't think either answer fits all scenarios, so I think we'll need a control here, as XSL-FO has done.  We have pretty strong interop for 2.1, so I don't think we want to change this now.  (Arguments to the contrary, Michael?)
