A current version of Compart's FO engine handles the present case
exactly how FOP does without Vincent's patch. An older XEP 4.9 trial
lying around does the same.

OTOH, an older AntennHouse 4.2 trial behaves like after Vincent's patch.
Ecrion's current version, too.

So there really is a need for clarification.
