It might be possible to address the problem by somehow saying that each
region renders an independent copy of the content flowed into the region.
Then an element that's a stack context but split across regions would split
into stacking contexts within each region. Or something like that.

How's that? Are we allowing per-region styling of the flowed content now?
That has all kinds of issues of its own :-).
