I ought to be more explicit there: part of the reason I suggest the above
is in case it ends up that interactions among the various anonymous block
transformations and run-in manipulations and pseudo-element things and
generated content (such as with list-style-position:inside markers) get
specified as part of the description of box tree generation.  I would expect
that at least some of these things happen as part of generating boxes in
existing implementations.
