Thank you for your comment to xsl-editors@w3.org archived at

The XSL WG is going through the comments at this time, developing
errata and lists of items to consider for a future version of XSL.

The following is our disposition of your above comment:

Disposition: Explanation of why no change will be made

It would not be appropriate to allow space-start and space-end
on block-level formatting objects.  This would be particularly
problematic considering that space-start and space-end values
can be length ranges.  This does not fit in well with the
current XSL formatting model.

Instead, as noted in your comment, one can effectively get the 
desired results using the 'inherit' keyword added to a value.

Please Reply (cc-ing xsl-editors@w3.org) if you wish to make
an objection to our resolution.

Thank you for your interest in XSL.
