Updated 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, ignoring any collapsible white space
    # or out-of-flow elements in between them), splitting the inline
    # box into two boxes, one each side of the block-level box.

It's a bit awkward, but I think that should work. Thoughts?

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

(This has been deferred to another issue.)
