Here's my proposed text, which is now in the editor's draft [1]:

  The assignment is considered to take place on the first page where a
  content box representing the element occurs. If the element does not
  have any content boxes (e.g., if 'display: none' is set), the
  assignment is considered to take place on the page where the first
  content box would have occured if the element had been in the normal


This may not represent your suggested priciples fully, but I don't
think it makes any practical difference?
