This one's already on the radar.[1]  I'll make sure it gets filed  
although note that nothing in the spec directly implies what 
box-generation behaviour happens in this case apart from this example 
itself.  (At this depth, there are a number of problems with the 
treatment of the inline formatting model as regards white space and box 
generation, such as those described in the post referenced inside [1].)
