    I've always thought it was so in the case of the elided text ending at
    the a sentence and a period followed by a three-dot ellipsis in the case
    of text beginning after a sentence being elided.

    In other words, there is no such thing as a four-dot ellipsis, there are
    just sentences, ending in periods as usual, with three-dot ellipses
    replacing elided sections.
