The wording in Zilles' paragraph is incorrect. We allow you to nest a
block-quote in mid-paragraph, which effectively splits a block. Both
fragments (which are block-areas) of the outer fo:block may exist in the
same parent area-container.

   AAAA AAAA AAAA AAAA AAAA AAAA:   <--- block-area #1, fo:block-A
      BBBB BBBB ...                 <--- block-area #2
      BBB BBB.
   AAA-continued AAA AAA            <--- block-area #3, continues fo:block-A
