I’d like to launch a vote for the integration of the patch from
Bugzilla #50763  into the Trunk.
The implementation of fo:basic-link would deviate from the XSL-FO 1.1
Recommendation, and behave as if the following sentence were added to
Section 6.9.2, “fo:basic-link”:
“The extent, in the block-progression-dimension, of the
content-rectangle of an inline-area generated by fo:basic-link, is
the minimum required to enclose the allocation-rectangles of all the
inline-areas stacked within that inline-area.”
This sentence is borrowed, with minor modifications, from the definition
of the maximum-line-rectangle in Section 4.5, “Line-areas”.
A bug  has been raised at W3C and the implementation may be changed
in the future to match the new requirements that may follow from its
+1 from me.
+1 from me. it doesn't make sense for the spec to dictate that the
content rectangle of a basic link to comes from the line-height of its
children, because then its not possible to make images clickable links.
