It doesn't really matter, does it? It's explaining what *not* to do.

You restart the line grid at the top of the next page as if there was a whole line
box placed there. You don't restart the line grid at the top of the next page with
the bottom piece of the theoretical line box that didn't fit at the bottom of the
last page.
