So any time a run-in is not part of a sequence of run-ins at the 
beginning of a block and not part of a sequence of run-ins that are 
followed by a block it gets moved into the following block?

I assume the "first inline" bit also has to ignore whitespace?

How does this affect floating or positioned children of the run-in? 
What do their containing blocks end up being?  (I believe this was 
already on the issues list.)

But the out-of-flows and whitespace in question do not, correct?

I don't think it's any more insane than what we had so far, at least.  ;)
