Isn't it then a nut graf rather than a lede?

AFAIK, Lib?ration (a French newspaper) uses one-sentence-long ledes,
and puts them right between the title and author of the article. The
lede is also used as a summary for the article on the main page.

It could be "somewhat transparent", used either as a container for
block-level elements or as the first child of a block-level element,
containing significant inline content.
