Golden principle of constructive discussion: "Criticizing - propose".

What are alternatives to "float as a hacky page layout tool"
in modern CSS and in foreseeable future?

Just for the note, this is style sheet of W3 front page:
  http://www.w3.org/2008/site/css/advanced
Rhetoric question: is massive float use there
a hacky page layout tool or not?

I mean that www-style list is not the place where phrases
"float as a hacky layout tool" or "table as a hacky layout tool" make 
real sense. CSS has no alternatives to them, sorry.
