This made me wonder: the above could be normalized by removing those
two nodes and setting a break-before on the possibly following
fo:block (if it does not already have break-before specified).
Normalizations like this could prove to be yet another possibility to
release FOs or Properties sooner (before layout is even triggered).
Not that it would occur that often, but maybe there are other such
constructs that occur more frequently (?)
