Filed as CSS2.1 Issue 242:
   http://wiki.csswg.org/spec/css2.1#issue-242

Rough draft proposal:

Replace
    # are broken around the block-level box, dividing the inline box
    # into two pieces (even if either side is empty)
with
    # are broken around the block-level box (and any consecutive
    # block-level siblings), splitting the inline box into two boxes,
   # one each side of the block-level box

or rather somesuch that also addresses any white space interaction.

Also need a proposal to address z-index issues...
