Take the following fo snippet:

Would one expect the text "medium bottom" to be aligned
a) with the bottom of the text "small top"
b) with the bottom of the text "BIG"?
I'm not an expert here, but maybe it may make things a bit clearer if
you expand the vertical-align shorthand into:
It seems then that the vertical-align on the innermost inline actually
refers to the after-edge, which IIC would be relative to the after-edge
of its parent (and not that of the block ancestor).
So I'd agree with your hunch and RenderX here...
