It was observed that browsers don't quite implement E.2:5 as per the spec. 
There's actually an error in the spec. Point 5 in E.2 should be changed as 
follows:

s/but any descendants which actually create a new stacking context/but any 
positioned descendants and descendants which actually create a new 
stacking context/

Testcase (assumes proposed changes):

Things that are impossible just take longer.   `._.-(,_..'--(,_..'`-.;.'
