Hey that's not fair: making me read the manual:-)
Actually I think the bit that you quoted and I underlined is exactly the
bit specifying that it can go to later pages, isn't it?

I don't think so. My reading of it is that a float marked for such an
area can be placed in _any_ before-float-reference area (that is,
loosely, the top of any page).

The main constraints that apply are that floats stay in order of
the fo:float and that the generated block area is on the same
or later page.
