Trailing spaces in a paragraph: yes, absolutely, which is why the  
trailing whitespace in any block is removed there (albeit only  
whitespace characters that are direct descendants of the block).

Trailing spaces in a line: now *this* is where currently most of the  
tests fail. Trailing spaces are discarded only when you force text- 
align to justify (for example).

Point is: if trailing spaces in a line are correctly suppressed  
during line-building, the trailing spaces in the last inline of a  
given block would be removed in that step (no matter at what depth  
the inline is nested).
