Is Setext Heading spec wrong?

#1

from Setext heading spec,

…The lines of text must be such that, were they not followed by the setext heading underline, they would be interpreted as a paragraph: they cannot be interpretable as a code fence, ATX heading, block quote, thematic break, list item, or HTML block.

My Question : Why they cannot be interpretable as other blocks?

Why the lines of text which aren’t followed by the setext heading underline cannot be interpretable as a code fence or etc? I understood above like this way.

So, for example,

# abc

This line of text aren’t followed by the setext heading underline, but we always interpret it as a ATX Heading.

Self Answer:
"…, were they not followed by the setext heading underline," mean “, if they were not followed by the setext heading unerline,”. Yes, it’s the subjunctive mood
