i don't mean to push the subject, but would anyone be able to tell me why 
positioning properties could not have multiple values in order to allow for 
multi-area text-flow...

(e.g.

#elementQ {
  position: absolute;
  left: 0px, 250px;
  top: 0px, 50px;
  width: 200px;
  height: 400px, 350px;
}

__________________________
|       elementQ           |
|  __________  __________  |
| |  box 1   ||  box 2   | |
  | ________ ||          |
   |this is | | ________ |    the 1st box is at (0,0) and has
   |text in |  |ment Q. |     dimensions 200x400. the 2nd box
   |element |  |this is |     is at (250,50) and has dimensions
   |Q. this |  |text in |     200x350.
   |is text |  |element |
   |in ele- |  |Q.      |

...has this already been proposed?  if so, why was it shot down (if it was)?
