This was my point exactly. If linefeed-treatment affects *only* U+000A, then
why would changing *only* the linefeed-treatment property affect whether
U+2028 creates or does not create a new line in the output?

I am not trying to recommend a change in standards at all, although I may
not fully understand how they all fit together yet. The Unicode standard
seems to indicate that the purpose of U+2028 is to make an unambiguous
statement that a line break is intended at this location. This would be in
contradistinction to a normal CR, LF, or CR/LF combination, which could, and
often does, simply mean that I wanted to make a break here in my source
document to make it more readable. I haven't found anything in the XML or
XSL-FO standards that seems to contradict or override that. The
linefeed-treatment and related properties all seem to be bent on giving the
user flexibility with interpreting the meaning of the potentially ambiguous
CR, LF, and CR/LF characters, but do *not* seem to affect U+2028.
