I see it related since a 'flexible box model' uses a shrink-to-fit
algorithm just like a 'float'. The 'flexible box model' has defined
behavior with overflow values of 'auto' and 'hidden' where the issue
concerning the 'block formatting context' is undefined behavior. How
would both layout models work together in a layout?

   <div style="float:left">Sidebar</div>
   <div style="display:box">
     <div style="overflow:auto">Overflow Content</div>
     <div>Normal Content</div>

How does the overflow div react in the presence of the float?
