For the benefits of the working group, could you summarise these 6 cases
as well? At least one of the six cases can be done using CSS1 (see
http://lists.w3.org/Archives/Public/www-style/2002Aug/0137.html) so it's
not completely clear that all the proposed properties are needed.

While some of the suggested properties look very interesting, we are of
course very wary of adding 3 new properties without looking very carefully
at the requirements. Also, changing 'float', a property that was
introduced in CSS1 and still has no completely correct implementation, is
something that would have to be considered very carefully indeed.
