I should note here that I'm taking "[float] to the left/right of [a float]" in
the float rules to mean "their margin boxes overlap vertically", and that we're
using the same criterion that we chose for a line box being "next to" a float,
such that a negative-height float isn't considered "to the left/right of" any
other float.

I believe that the phrase "to the left/right" of in the current
publicly-visible text isn't clear enough, and needs to be changed.

Similarly, "top"/"bottom" need to be clarified, presumably to "outer top" /
"outer bottom".
