It's not desired, was my point.  Except apparently by fantasai.

My point is that the spec currently says that in this case the run-in 
should NOT run in.  Fantasai apparently thinks this should be perhaps 
changed so it runs into the anonymous block containing "in"; I'm 
pointing out that this is not obviously desirable change.  I have no 
idea where your proposed rendering came from or what changes to the spec 
it's assuming and why.
