This seems like a step in the right direction :)

I think it might be helpful to have a method to declare what the reference 
box is by id. That would give even finer control over what

Also, the example confuses me a bit.

bottom: previous top 10px;

Wouldn't this translate to "the bottom of this box is 10px below the top of 
the previous box"? Seems to me, the opposite is what the example shows 
(top: previous bottom 10px);). I could be off on that one.
