I'm not sure where your problem in comprehension lies ... XSL-FO section 4 
on the Area Model is clear, especially in 4.4, that XEP is correct ... what 
was it about the wording in the XSL-FO Recommendation that made you think 
another presentation for your example is correct?  Which written materials 
did you consult when presented with this difference to make you believe 
there was any ambiguity?

I hope this helps.
