I've summarized the state of the thread at
   http://wiki.csswg.org/topics/flex-abspos-placeholders

It would help if people gave solid arguments in favor of or against
one or the other of the proposals, preferably with understandable
use cases. :)


So far we've had Kang-hao and Brad Kemper weigh in on

   B > A > C

 From implementer's perspective, I suspect it would be more like

   C > B > A

I'm happy to spec anything, I just need people with informed opinions
to inform us so the WG can make an informed decision. :)
