Isn't this actually covered by the new "Parallel flows" section in the
fragmentation spec[1]?
If anything, the fragmentation spec might add some wording to clarify the
definition of a Block Formatting Context to refer to a block that contains
all the floated boxes that are inside it, including fragment (boxes) of
floats.

Thoughts?
