I have re-worded the text associated with issue 15183 in CSS Exclusions to
reflect statements made in this thread and at the San Diego face-to-face
meeting. Here is the updated text:

---
  The current draft provides a model for exclusions
  without a collision-avoidance model. The existing
  exclusion model in CSS uses floats, which have both
  exclusion and collision-avoidance behavior. Concerns
  have been raised that allowing exclusions without
  collision avoidance could be harmful, particularly
  with absolutely-positioned elements. Three options
  should be considered:

  1. Allow exclusions in positioning schemes with no
  collision avoidance
  
  2. Disallow exclusions in positioning schemes with
  no collision avoidance
  
  3. Define collision-avoidance behavior for positioning
  schemes without it, and use this behavior by default
  with exclusions.

Thanks,

Alan
