What Gecko does makes sense. Blink does what it does due to implementation limitations. Essentially, the old Blink engine doesn't understand block fragments (the boxes are just tall strips sliced into fragments during painting and hit-testing). LayoutNG fixes this, but NG block fragmentation hasn't shipped yet.

Positioning and sizing each fragment individually makes sense to me - especially since we may have variable inline-size fragmentainers (such as regions or named pages).
