[SZ] Good question. Since (I believe) the intent of a "run-in" is to make the content within it become part of the block (or list item) it runs into, then I would paint the run-in as it were part of that block (or list item). I believe that is the intent of saying in 9.2.3 Run-in boxes that "A is rendered as an 'inline' element at the start of B's principal box."

I would also note that I forgot the "or list-item" in the text I suggested. It should have been there.
