This looks buggy indeed, but I'm not 100% certain what the bug is  
exactly (or even if there is one).
The more I think about, the more correct the behavior seems to be.

What I found out so far, is that it works if you specify the  
reference-orientation on the region-body, and leave it off the block- 

Now, it seems a bit problematic IMO, since:
- the block-container has no specified height => auto-height, which  
means the total height should be equal to the content-height
- that height will only increase in case the block-container's  
content overflows the available space in block-progression-direction

Contrary to what one could assume (and what I once believed as well),  
the reference-orientation property has no influence on the  
correspondence mapping. This means that, even though you have rotated  
the block-container, inline-progression-dimension will still  
correspond to width. This seems to work OK: the block-container is  
16cm wide.

BUT: The available space in block-progression-dimension for the table  
would, still be the reference-area's block-progression-dimension (the  
block-container's height, not the page-width) [?]

At least this interpretation is reflected in 0.95, where I don't see  
the header appear anymore.
If not rotated, then the block-container can grow to fit the table on  
one page, so I see no page-break.

OTOH, if I switch to 16cm block-progression dimension, with a rotated  
region-body then the block-container also does not break, where I'd  
expect it to...
