[CSS21] Resolution to Issue 229 is flawed

I've run out of time to go into any detail right now, but I wanted to 
express that I'm unhappy with the resolution to Issue 229 (effect of a 
later float on previous line boxes) because it doesn't address my 
original issue, it makes too many easy-to-handle cases undefined for the 
different issue that it does handle, and it's also editorially flawed: 
"if a float's position is foo then its position is undefined" is 
self-contradictory; it can't be undefined if it's possible to determine 
that it's foo!
