If I'm saying "comparable to 9.2.1.1" then I should perhaps also be explicit
about a difference from the 9.2.1.1 case: for 9.2.1.1 the "extra level of
inheritance" gets added to the end, whereas :first-line requires the inlines
[and floats, depending on whether we go with red or green] on that line box
need their own styling to override (inherit from) this "extra level of
inheritance", i.e. the extra level isn't simply added to the end of the
inheritance chain.
