Oh, hey. I was going to clean that up, but looks like I forgot...
Should be tidied up now. I'll need to do a second editorial pass,
but should be workable now.

Yes, step 6 re-interprets the box as a ruby annotation. I'm not
sure how to make that more clear.

It really creates a ruby annotation box for the purposes of layout.

However, pairing is handled specially: it can pair only with an
inter-base white space box. (Is that not clear somehow?)
