Why is the spec called "positioned layout"? It seems everybody is referring to it as "css3 positioning", and "positioned layout" was/is used to refer to proposals dealing with radical new ways of using positioning, such as what is on Tab's blog...

Is there rationale to call it "layout" that is no obvious to me?
