Indeed it makes that claim and I asked Tab the same question; he told me the WG accepted it though I haven’t yet found the relevant resolution. I do not recall this being discussed at the f2f and the minutes do not seem to capture it either. Fwiw I do not think we would agree to this without the opportunity to assess the compat impact first.

Blog posts should really link to the spec changes they’re talking about.

Subject: Has it been resolved to make position:fixed induce a stacking context?

This blog post claims that the WG has resolved to make position:fixed induce a stacking context:

Was this decision made at a F2F? I haven't seen anything about it on the list. James Robinson brought this up on the list in May and in that thread it was pointed out that Gecko and Opera are able to accelerate scrolling without this spec change, so we shouldn't need to make it.
