Just noticed: it's actually not so much merging the breaks themselves, but
rather merging the break-conditions. There would be no conflict, no winner.
Both conditions should always be satisfied by the outcome.

In case you have 25 nested blocks with break-before="page" with the same basic
structure as the example, then the 25 break-conditions can be satisfied by one
effective break. Generating 25 breaks would be equally valid, but unnecessary.
