Once issue-159 is addressed, these tests:
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/html4/margin-collapse-036.htm
http://test.csswg.org/suites/css2.1/20101001/xhtml1/margin-collapse-036.xht
will become invalid because the internal contradiction in the spec
will have been fixed.  (The contradiction was that in this case:
  <div id="a" style="min-height: 100px">
    <div id="b"></div>
  </div>
the spec said that the top and bottom margin of "a" were not
adjoining, but that all the consecutive pairs of margins (top-a
top-b, top-b bottom-b, bottom-b bottom-a) were adjoining, which
aren't simultaneously possible.)

The current proposal for that issue is here:
