Hmm.  I remember explicitly thinking about this at the time and trying 
to make sure this problem didn't get introduced in the edits Brad was 
making (it wasn't a problem in my original proposal, since that was 
entirely formulated in terms of boxes), but I may well have lost track 
in the process.  Can someone please link me to the current editor's 
draft?  I once again seem to not have it bookmarked, and it's of course 
not spidered by search engines or linked anywhere sane...

We do seem to be coming back to that over and over, no?  ;)
