I wrote a few simple tests for how outlines treat descendant elements: https://mcc.id.au/2019/outline/

The summary is that Firefox includes many of these descendant elements, but that Chrome and WebKit include none of them.  I am in favor of changing the sentence:

> The position of the outline may be affected by descendant boxes.

that is currently in the spec to something like this:

> The outline should be influenced only by the primary box of the element; it should not be affected by descendant boxes.

(I'm not sure if "primary box" is the right CSS spec term to use here.)
