I have followed this thread to see what might come out of it.
This conclusion of yours is IMO fully acceptable as a solution for the
"height problem" of the root element.

My only "objection" would be on if it qualifies as an "errata" entry.
I would still like to see a CSS2.1 revision where all ambiguities that
has been under discussion could be ironed out so that we would have a
"final" CSS2 spec that is all correct as per consensus.
