This change should affect more than floats.  It should also affect inline-block, inline-table, and positioned content with z-index: auto.

See appendix E for details.

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):
