If an author didn't do that, and the last box had a limited height, then I think it would be reasonable for excess content to move I to the regular (non-region) flow. In other words, breaks would not be ignored in the last box, and for region-overflow:break (which should be the initial value), excess content on the final region _would _be rendered, because it would break into the normal flow.
