I originally thought 'display' changes shouldn't be allowed.  And
then I couldn't figure out why it should really be a problem.
(Maybe anonymous box generation is, though.)  Though it might be a
good bit of extra work for no real gain.  (Though 'float' and
'position' changes seem likely to have some real use cases.)
