You are confusing me: Further above you said that
"suppress-at-line-break" cannot be specified on a fo:block but now
seem to say it can, it just does not apply. Why is 5.1.4 saying

according to your interpretation any property (be it inheritable or
not) can be placed on any object.
Sorry, wasn't my intention. I'm still adjusting to the fact that I was
under a different belief earlier.
XSL-FO, Page 4 (PDF, bottom) says: "Although every formatting property
may be specified on every formatting object, for each formatting
class, only a subset of the formatting properties are used to
the traits for objects of that class." That's what I was missing
That's also why there probably is no official XML Schema for XSL-
Yep, and to add to all the fun there's some interesting side-effects
related to this. I think I already mentioned this one on fop-users
some time ago... Take, for instance:
Since white-space-treatment is an inherited property, but does not
apply to an fo:inline, the specified value of "preserve" will only
govern white-space-handling for the inner fo:block. The fo:inline
itself uses the value inherited from the outer fo:block.
This holds for all inherited properties, I guess...
