I agree, it would be reasonable to add a clarification like this. There is a good level of interop now, at least at the level of inline vs. block so it will help to have a little less guessing.

...

Alex, do we need to make a clarification here to avoid the IE<8 interpretation?
I would have expected that the "if its 'position' property had been 'static'"
bit would require guessing the position using the specified (not used) display
property.
