   # Regions establish a new block formatting context.
   # ...
   # Floats or other exclusions potentially impact content laid out in regions,
   # just as for non-regions. In the following example, the inline content coming
   # from the body_text named flow wraps around the #float box.

As Anton notes in [1], you can't have regions establish a new block formatting
context *and* have floats outside them impact the content inside. This amounts
to specifying exactly opposite things. (The inline content of a block formatting
context root pretty much by definition is not impacted by floats outside it.)
