I'm planning on writing a Positioning module later this summer (based
on the draft on my blog) that covers the 'position' property and some
extensions to it.  Given that, it may make more sense to dedicate this
module just to floats and float extensions.  The "float:positioned"
bit would still belong here in this draft, though it may need some
language coordination with whatever I use in my draft.
