On that last point let me clarify and point out that I never suggested that.
By definition a line area is a block area that contains only inline areas as

The quibble was over whether block areas returned/generated by by FO
children, and line areas that wrap inline areas returned/generated by FO
children, can/must/shouldn't co-exist in a single normal block area
generated by the top-level block FO. I was suggesting the "shouldn't"
viewpoint; Karen reads it differently.

I am off to work so cannot comment more at the moment, on anything. :-)
