Not sure if we're meant to comment on this, but I'd say: it doesn't 
cause an accessibility issue, *unless* the author is relying on a 
particular visual positioning to suggest or create a relationship 
necessary to the understanding of the content, but which is not present 
in the original document itself (i.e. it doesn't make sense, or has a 
different meaning altogether, with styles turned off).
