The document [1] outlines a very simple solution to do box positioning 
in a more precise way than what allows CSS2 for the time being. It's not 
just a conceptual approach. This model _is_ implemented, although not 
with the corresponding CSS bla-bla, in the descendants of the Grif 
editor, including W3C's Amaya.

Don't misunderstand me; the document does *not* call for the immediate 
deprecation of the 'position' property!!! It is just meant to show that 
we could do better still keeping it simple and consistent with the CSS 
spirit.

Comments highly welcome.
