 What if you had a named flow that contained one large element (and nothing
 else), and the chain of regions associated with that named flow had a
 small region followed by a large region. The large element would not fit
 in the first region, but does fit in the second. Could the first region be
 "empty"
 and the second region be "fit"? Do we need another value for "skipped"?

The purpose of this property is to generate the right number of pages.in this case the first regions wouldn't be empty, it would be "overflow", meaning there is content after it.

We could of course have "skipped" but it wouldn't be useful for this purpose, and if somebody really needs to know there will be a way to analyze region content in detail.
