Okay, I've clarified that step to say it doesn't include any
internal ruby box types.

I'm still unsure as to whether such types are inline-level
or not. They do participate in the inline formatting context,
but they also have ruby-specific layout roles to play. So
I've marked that point as an issue in the spec.
