Seems like the behaviour in the first case --explicit start-indent  
equal to zero on the last block-- is correct, after all.

start-indent "specifies the distance from the start-edge of the  
content-rectangle of the containing reference-area to the start-edge  
of the content-rectangle of that block-area"

The containing reference-area being the region-viewport-area (?),  
this would lead to the outer block being placed 2cm from the region- 
body's start-edge, and the block-container only 1cm...

As for the other case:
The block-container generates its own reference-area, so a possible  
inherited value of start-indent should be measured starting from the  
b-c's start-edge (so if start-indent is not explicitly specified, the  
start-edge of the content-rectangle of the last block should  
virtually coincide with the start-edge of the content-rectangle of  
the outer block --2cm from the region's start-edge).
