Aside from `display: contents`, what else would make the parent box not the parent element?

Okay, yeah, blockification affects the inner display type, but there's no merge conflict here. :) Although I'm not sure that this actually needs to happen; `flow` blocks can behave the same as `flow-root` in some cases, like floats and suchlike... changing the inner display type doesn't seem necessary, and certainly can't be a computed value time operation given https://www.w3.org/TR/CSS2/visuren.html#dis-pos-flo That's maybe a separate bug.
