[Forget what I said and drawn earlier today. I had the wrong picture
in mind, although my comment about where text-indent starts from was
still appropriate].

I support Arved's view (although I will submit the matter to the
Working Group). My reading of section 4.7.2 Line-building, item 5 [1]
is that a block area will have as children a collection of block-areas
and in-line area. The definition of text-indent is about the first
line-area in the block, which is formed by the inline area children of
that block (including fo:characters).

That doesn't seem to be of a particular concern to me.

I am pretty sure that the answer is no. But again I'll check.
