Tab linked to the wrong commit, should be https://github.com/w3c/csswg-drafts/commit/8bb4d824180eccee53864aa40b883d0eb7140c0a I think.

@Loirooriol I think we need to figure out exactly how block-in-inline splits work in the theoretical world in the Flow Layout spec (which hasn't been written). Currently we're working with what's in CSS2.1 Chapter 9, though, and it only generates anonymous blocks when there's a mix of block-level and inline-level content in the same block container. So CSS Display Level 3 needs to be written to that understanding. We can refine the theoretical model later if need be, but for now we need to go with what we have--there's no observable behavioral difference, and given the differences in how implementations handle flow layout internally, there shouldn't be.
