I was wondering whether or not positioned children would match the  
definition of empty-cells. Currently, cells are considered empty unless  
they contain one of the following:

# * floating content (including empty elements),
# * in-flow content (including empty elements) other
#   than whitespace that has been collapsed away by
#   the 'white-space' property handling.

It seems that this definition excludes positioned children, though it  
appears that not many browsers noticed that:
