I still think it can happen even without nesting; consider the document
(rendered for email as if it were HTML)

<p class="bigbold">This is important!</p>
<p class="fineprint">This is even more important.</p>

Now that will be rendered in Emacs as

This is important!
This is even more important.

with appropriate faces, and perhaps one more newline between the
sentences.  Now kill from "imp..." to "...more" and what happens?  If the
result (in the buffer, not the kill ring) is a new paragraph with a
mixture of styles, we have a problem because we then cannot tell whether a
style is applied to a paragraph or merely to every character in it.  If
it's something else, we have a problem because the nearby text properties
don't jive.  What am I missing?
