One further comment:

The definition of 'indent-edge-reset' needs to be changed so that
any element that establishes a new block formatting context also
establishes a new indent edge (probably based on its padding-box).
Without that change, float-displace could absolutely never be used
in a user-agent style sheet because it would break things like list
items in table cells (not in the leftmost column) that are next to
floats.
