Thank you for that link, that's very similar to what I'm talking about. 
I like it.
That's wrap-shape: auto | <shape> -- with shape defined as expected.

wrap-image may have some same origin issues; it could "expose" some
small amount of data bout the image contents. For instance, the user could
load an image from another domain and based on transparency, tell that the
content of the image has changed.

Are wrap-margin and wrap-padding something that works with border / 
outline properties?

I think that wrap-shape is pretty solid on its own; seems like it could 
be implemented by vendors
that already have SVG foreignObject+html implementations.
